Tue 28 Jun Buff-banded Rail Mango Hill
Bird visiting regularly in back yard, scavenging on meat bone left out for dog near pond and bushes. Bosses doves and pigeons and seems to be familiar with yard and not too afraid of my presence, though is too wary for me to photograph. Looks like one on link.

Sun 26 Jun Topknot Pigeon Brisbane - Kedron Brook Wetlands, Nundah and Strathpine
Whilst out and about this weekend I noticed a strong passage of Topknot Pigeons over various areas of Brisbane. Yesterday afternoon, I had c.500 birds in 6 flocks go over Kedron Brook wetlands, and then this morning whilst running chores such as shopping and putting the washing out, had c.300 in 2 flocks over Strathpine, and c.300 in 3 flocks over Nundah. Birds were always very high up and heading north. Would be interested to know if any other Brisbane birders noted a passage of Topknots this weekend? These observations were made in very short periods of being outside and looking, so curious to know if anyone noted a much larger movement happening?
