I've been conducting monthly raptor counts along Pumicestone Passage,
between Bribie island and the mainland (north of Birsbane) for over
a year now and we've only had one or two sightings of jabiru.

They used to breed in a dead tree next to the Bruce Highway just south of
the Pine River but haven't done so for many years now.
