Fri 1Black-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. eBird checklist

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.
