Hi all

On a whirlwind family trip to Brisbane on the weekend I saw a couple of species 
I wasn't expecting - also plenty of other sensational birds I was vaguely 
hoping for.  It was unbearably hot (now I know why I don't live there any more) 
so I only went birding very early on both Saturday and Sunday.

The surprises were:

Glossy Black Cockatoo  - a pair in the middle of Raven Street Reserve, West 
Chermside, munching on casuarinas, at about 5.30 am on Sat 29-01-5

Magpie-Goose - three flew over Deepwater  Bend in Tinchi Tamba Wetlands 
Reserve, Bald Hills, at about 8.30 am on Sunday 30-01-05.  Are these 'tickable' 
in SE Qld?

Nice sightings at Tinchi Tamba included 3 Kingfishers (Sacred, Forest and 
Mangove), many White-Breasted Woodswallows, Eastern Curlew, Whimbrel, 
Red-backed Fairy Wren (oh so cute) and Brolga.
