Many apologies, I know this question does not relate directly to birds, 
but I am hoping there are some budding herpetologists out there. Tonight 
I found a snake on my property near the house (scared the dog a bit). It 
is about 2 feet long, slender in body and distinctively marked with 
black and white bands; it also had a relatively small head. Could 
somebody let me know what this snake is and let me know more about it's 

Incidentally, Koels have been calling here (Nambour) since early October 
and a couple of recent highlights on my property: Pacific Baza pair 
perched high up a eucalypt; king parrots (pr) feeding in my guava tree; 
white-headed pigeons (5) feeding in the neighbour's camphor laurels; and 
regular YTBC's.
