Hello All
The most visible birds at our place in Parap is Bar-shouldered Dove 
followed by Peaceful Dove, White-gaped Honeyeater, Figbird, Yellow 
Oriole,Pied Imperial-pigeon, Helmeted Friarbird (in the wet season 
mainly) and Orange-footed Scrubfowl.  

The most numerous in order - Figbird, Rufous-banded Honeyeater, 
White-gaped Honeyeater, Red-headed Honeyeater, Bar-shouldered Dove, 
Peaceful Dove and Brown Honeyeater.  In in the mid-late dry season 
Double-barred Finches and Chestnut-breasted Mannikins (flocks of 100-200) 
predominate.  In the wet season Fork-tailed Swifts are common above 
Parap, sometimes in their thousands.

The composition of birds in my garden has changed since I first moved 
here in 1984.  Then Silver-crowned Friarbird was the most common large 
honeyeater and Brown and Rufous-banded the most common small birds.  With 
a somewhat warmer and wetter climate since those days my small patch of 
relict monsoon forest has expanded hugely and the once small trees around 
the elevated house are now in some cases giants, towering over the roof.
