Mon 6Alexandrine Parakeet (escapee)
Translational Research Institute, Dutton Park Train Station, Woolloongabba
At 9:30 and again at 9:34 this morning an Alexandrine Parrot flew past my office. ID based on jizz, size, colour and call. Even though it's an escapee it is worth noting as this is a very invasive species (as it's smaller relative the Rose-ringed Parakeet).

Sat 4Pacific Baza
Mulgoa Nature Reserve, Western Sydney
We had a fantastic 45 minutes watching a Pacific Baza flying from branch to branch before plunging into foliage to take a stick insect or mantid. It had no fear or even interest in us and often came within just a few metres. Uncropped photo attached. Other good birds were Rose Robins, Restless Flycatchers, Buff-rumped Thornbills and WeeBills.

Australasian Grebe
Veterans Hall Wharf Saratoga
A group of 14 Australasian Grebe were observed in a tight group on Brisbane Water at around 0930. This grouping is known to occur with Hoary-headed Grebe on Tuggerah Lakes however this is the first that I have noted on Brisbane Waters after over 40 years of birdwatching in the area.
