Hi all,

A friend and i decided to go sight seeing  in Springbrook which is in the Gold Coast Hinterland in Queensland. While it was mainly a non-birding trip i did manage to spot birds from the car or on our few walks. I am planning on going back but this time for a day of birdwatching at Perlingbrook Falls. Tommorow i hope to go to Hinze Dam also here on the Gold Coast in search of more lifers. The following is a list of the species i saw today. 

female Albert's Lyrebird

Australian Brush-Turkey

a flock of 8 to 10 Topknot Pigeon's (lifer)

Rainbow Lorikeet

Crimson Rosella

King Parrot

Laughing Kookaburra

Large-billed Scrubwren

White-browed Scrubwren (these birds hung around with the Albert's Lyrebird in one location and with the Logrunners in the other locations i saw them)

Brown Thornbill

Lewin's Honeyeater

Noisy Miner

Eastern Yellow Robin

Logrunner (8 birds one getting as close as one metre to me)

Eastern Whipbird

Grey Fantail

Pied Butcherbird

Australian Magpie

Pied Currawong

Satin Bowerbird

Yours Sincerely
Mr Jade Welch
