Hi all,

Heres a list of the species I saw at Lamington National Park while bird watching and searching for the elusive Coxen?s Fig Parrot (Psittaculirostris diophthalma) on the various tracks on the 16/12/02. Highlights of the trip was seeing a Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo on the way to Lamington National Park along with a mature Wedge-tailed Eagle perched with an immature in the top of a dead tree also on the way to Lamington National Park. Other Highlights were seeing my first Alberts lyrebird, and numerous King parrots and Crimson Rosellas at Lamington National Park.

N.B Please excuse the poor grammar and spelling mistakes.
