  Black-breasted Button-quail Inskip Point Recreation Area
Third time lucky! I've been to this site twice before over the last couple
of years, but haven't managed to get onto this species. Today I found one
adult male BBBQ in the company of a pair of Bar-shouldered Doves. All three
birds were feeding on the ground near a large fig tree along the track to
the point from the carpark. The tree should be obvious, as it was filled
with squabbling Figbirds this morning. Inskip was very 'birdy' this
morning, despite the large number of 4WD's noisily making their way towards
the barge to Fraser. I saw the BBBQ at around 9:30.

  Albert's Lyrebird Mt.Tambourine(Witches Falls)
I was very thrilled to find and photograph a number of Albert's Lyrebirds
this morning. It was a special moment watching a number of these birds
display. I believe that I found 8 separate individuals during a 3 hour
wander on the bottom track but I could be wrong as some could have crossed
the track. Calling loudly and displaying beautifully!

  Red-winged Parrot Lancewood Place Moggill
One bird only flew into my yard and fed with pale headed Rosellas for about
ten minutes, then flew off. I was able to approach the Parrot within
3metres to get nice photos.

 Sun 27 Jul Painted Honeyeater Gregory Development Road, 22km s. of
Stopped to view a large feeding group of Masked and White-browed
Woodswallows in an area of flowering and heard the familiar Painted
Honeyeater call. Photographed (not very well) one of the birds whilst the
other was calling a little way off.
