In lowland rainforest on Sunday at Lake Poona, Cooloola, I had three species
of Ptilinopus - Wompoo, Rose-crowned and Superb Fruit-Doves, within an hour
of each other. The latter is a rare species in south-east Queensland.
At nearby Inskip Point, Black-breasted Button-quail were again performing
well, with several sightings including a male with a brood of chicks.
The resident pair of Beach Stone-Curlews were behaving as if they had a
nest. That they are still doing well is something of a miracle given the
huge volume of 4-wheel drive traffic on the beach.
