Hi Everyone,

Posted this sighting on eremea but thought I'd put it on here, too.  Went to 
Girraween NP on 30 January - a really hot day!  At about 2 pm, found a female 
Spotted Quail-thrush down the Robertson's Hole walking track about 50 metres 
from the Underwater Creek junction.  It was feeding close to the track on the 
right hand side (heading down towards the water hole) and then flew over onto 
the other side of the track.  This was a new Queensland bird for me and a lifer 
for Peter - he missed the first sighting of it, but then picked it up on the 
left hand side by following the contact call.  We assume the male was near by 
but, because we were on a tight time frame, we did not go after it.

Also had great views of Turquoise Parrots near the Pyramid Rock Winery on the 
Old Wallangarra Road.  The place was also teeming with Brown Treecreepers - 
always nice to see in this part of Queensland, and Peter got a fleeting glimpse 
of a Diamond Firetail.
