Today  I was doing a 'reccy' for our  next Tuesday's outing and had lunch at
Stony Creek in the Brisbane Ranges. A white-browed treecreeper came and sat
on the table no more than 30cm away.  Soon after a Crimson Rosella was
walking around my feet, very tame birds!  There many more treecreepers close
by .  It is apparent they are used to getting food from other picnickers.

I would be grateful if those who know this area well could advise of good
birding places in the Brisbane Ranges  other than Anakie Gorge & Stony
Creek.  I went into a couple of other tracks near Steiglitz , where the
group suggested we go,  but there seemed to be few birds about, a few
Thornbills , Grey Fantail, and  Eastern Spinebill  were about all I saw.
Wedge-tailed Eagle soared overhead.
At Stony Creek there were Eastern Yellow Robins, Sacred Kingfisher,
Treecreepers, Yellow-tufted Honey eaters  with young,, Sacred Kingfisher ,
Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike, Currawong, and I was not really 'watching' just
checking possibilities while I ate lunch.
