|A small number of the flock .|
Back home for the camera, I snapped as many birds as possible with-in a small area. The full list spotted, Budgerigars ,Rainbow Bee-eaters , Lewin's Honeyeater , Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike , Dusky Woodswallows , Spangled Drongo , Grey Fantails, Willie Wagtails , Double-barred Finch.
This pasture seed and the associated insects provided food for both the insect and seed eating birds. They were there in large numbers and appeared to be in complete harmony,even the aggressive Drongo. With 80% of Queensland drought declared, Budgerigar feed may be very scarce west of the Great Dividing Range their usual habitat. The same time the following day, not one bird to be sighted , what luck.
