I had a few hours to spare between flights at Brisbane Airport, so i 
walked down Dryandra st and along the mangrove fringed creeks. I was 
suprised by a couple of birds that showed up, especially a lone 
Apostlebird and a couple of Scrub Turkeys.

Some other good birds where Mangrove Gerygone, Horsfields Cuckoo, 
Red-backed Fairy Wren and Rufous Whistler. 

Heres a list (from memory of what i saw..there was probably a few more ):

Horsfields Cuckoo
Red-backed Fairy wren
Rufous Whistler
Magrove Gerygone
Crested Pigeon
Brown Honeyeater
Scrub Turkey
White-faced Heron
Pacific Black Duck
Toressian Crow
Australian Magpie
Willie Wagtail
Whistling Kite
Noisy Miner
Leaden Flycatcher (?? only by call??)
Possibly Rainbow Beeater (call only too)
