The fairy-wrens are reason enough to go to Australia with this absolute gem, a male Superb Fairy-wren, being widespread and confiding. This bird was at O'Reilly's whilst the following images ware all from the lower Capertee Valley
Red-backed Fairy-wren was only seen in the Atherton Tablelands area with the first at Lake Mitchell and this gem from the balcony of the Mareeba Wetlands visitor centre.
The honeyeaters came in various shapes and sizes from the small sunbird like birds through to the large Blue-faced Honeyeaters (below). This being one of the slightly larger species, Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater (above),was only seen in the dry open forest oat Binya State Forest. The Blue-faced were more widespread with this bird along the Mt. Molloy Cycle track.
Noisy Miners were only encountered once I arrived in Brisbane and then there on in further south. This confiding bird was at the Daisy Hill Koala Refuge
