Queensland birdwatching - Atherton Tableland and surrounding area

Got a chance to work in Queensland and squeezed some time to do birding. I had done it mainly in Atherton Tableland near Cairns and the surrounding area. Didn't see a lot of species but some of them are quite fascinating. Rainforests there are classified as Wet Tropics World Heritage which contains lots of flora and fauna. Field guide I used is "The Slater Field Guide to Australian Birds".

Rainbow Lorikeet


White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike


Willy Wagtail


Red-tailed Black Cockatoo - look more like a crow from distance


Olive-backed Sunbird


Laughing Kookaburra


Spangled Drongo


Pacific Black Duck


Dusky Honeyeater


Eastern Spinebill


Australian Figbird


Bush Stone-curlew


Threat-display by the bird as I accidentally approached its nest


Noisy Pitta




Purple Swamphen


Rufous Fantail


Spotted Catbird - A nearly endemic to Wet Tropics


Lewin's Honeyeater


Grey-headed Robin - Wet Tropics Endemic


Bridled Honeyeater - Wet Tropics Endemic


Australian White Pelican


Tooth-billed Bowerbird - Wet Tropics Endemic. It is the group of birds which builds bower and collect shiny and colorful stuff to display. You may find many video clips about Bowerbirds on Youtube such as: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1zmfTr2d4c




Bower of the Tooth-billed Bowerbird


Great Bowerbird


It will give a flower as a gift to a female bird which is attracted to visit its bower!


Victoria's Riflebird - Wet Tropics Endemic, one of the four Birds of Paradise found in Australia


Magpie Lark


White-breasted Woodswallow


Sarus Crane


Whistling Kite


Buff-banded Rail


Masked Lapwing


Red-capped Plover


Chestnut-breasted Mannikin


Chowchilla - Wet Tropics Endemic


Australian Bustard - it's now quite rare to see one


Red-winged Parrot


Golden-headed Cisticola


Black-necked Stork - Good to see one!


Collared Sparrowhawk chased by a Willy Wagtail


Silvereye


Leaden Flycatcher


Lesser Sooty Owl - Someone proposed that it should be merged with Sooty Owl


Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher - The most beautiful Kingfisher I have ever seen. Definitely a must-twitch bird!


Black-backed Fairy-wren


White-cheeked Honeyeater


Brown Honeyeater


Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike


Australian Darter


Yellow Honeyeater


Varied Sittella


Pale-headed Rosella


Black Kite - Doesn't look quite like the one in Hong Kong which has a pale head


White-throated Honeyeater


Sacred Kingfisher


Bar-shouldered Dove


Yellow-throated Scrubwren


Pied Imperial-Pigeon


Silver Gull


Eastern Barn Owl


Southern Cassowary - A huge flightless bird which is related to Ostrich and Emu. Listed as Vulnerable in IUCN Redlist. Lucky to see a father with three chicks. The little chicks are definitely not little.
