In January this year, my hubby & I went for a day trip to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. In a place called Bellbird Creek there is a small café, on a property which is full of bird life. As we sat and ate lunch, we were surrounded by the sounds of bird calls. All the birds I photographed were lifers, so I was extremely happy!
The Bell Miner (also known as the Bellbird) has quite a distinct and unmistakable call.
A Yellow-spotted Honeyeater sat in a tree directly above us.
An elusive Brown Cuckoo-Dove sat in a tree across the small lake.
And a Buff-banded Rail wandered around the tables, ensuring it didn't get too close to these humans.
This property is home to many more species of birds which we will be more likely to see if we arrive in the morning. Another trip is planned later in the year.
