For my borderfence atlas exercise yesterday, I did a survey in the
vicinity of the Mt Clunie - Ballow Rim border gate on the MacPherson
Range.  There is certainly some nice forest up there, with some fairly
mature wet schlerophyll and rainforest.  Plenty of birds, too, with over
60 species on the atlas sheet.

One point of interest was the large number of paradise riflebirds
present - more than I have ever came across at once - almost to the
point of being as ubiquituous as the rufous fantails and distracting my
attention when looking for other species.  There were also a large
number of golden whistlers about.

Anyhow, the main point of interest was a pair of crested shrike-tits -
only the second time I have seen them in SEQ.  I gather they aren't as
common as they used to be.  I also saw a red-browed tree-creeper, which
made a nice change from its almost ubiquitious white-throated cousins.

Regards, Laurie.
