Forest Kingfisher (race: incinclus); Spotted Bowerbird (fem); Red-tailed Black Cockatoo; Rainbow Bee-Eater; Brown-backed Honeyeater; Spangled Drongo; Straw-necked Ibis (juv).
Lots of raptors. First, the Brahminy Kites:
Next the White-bellied Sea-eagles:
And then Whistling and Black Kites making the most of the burning off:
One thought on “Birds of Townsville area”
You have got some great photos there, especially of the female red-tailed cockatoo, the Brahminy Kites and White Bellied Sea Eagles.. However, your White Browed Tree Creeper is actually a “Brown-backed Honeyeater” and your Chough is a beautiful Spangled Drongo! (Spangled Drongos have a distinctive forked tail, a shorter more thickset bill and you can see some shiny spangles on the breast in your photograph. Loved the bower birds. You are so lucky to see those.
