Thu 20Magpie
Tannum Sands QLD 4680
Spotted a red magpie - feathers that are normally white are all red. Beak still white. Been around for weeks now. Seen by many in the area. Pops in to the primary school on occasion. Curious to know if the red is dye, dust or a mutation? Bec Robinson

Topknot Pigeon
Lane Cove Bushland Reserve
15 observed roosting high in the top of a gum tree. Not sure that they have been seen in such numbers around Lane Cove area before this. Impossible to photograph all in one shot so poor picture attached. Not sure if unusual enough to post as there have been sightings of a single bird historically.

On the Nature Walk near point 38, all within the secured area. The Little Desert area is looking superb at the moment with lots of flowering but often muddy access roads to deal with.

Have been visiting the NP for a decade and never seen this species before! Sighted 500 metres south of the intersection between Stable Tk and Thompsons Rd. We stopped to check out a whistler call when the gerygone flew into our space. eBird checklist

Straw-necked Ibis
Middle Lake Ibis Rookery
Estimated 20 000 adults and young on the lignum at the Ibis rookery; mainly Straw-necked, a few White Ibis. The water level is being maintained to ensure they are not drowned. Also a Brolga flew from the west side over the lake. eBird checklist

highlightPainted Honeyeater
5 Painted Honeyeaters seen including a pair. Birds were being very vocal moving throughout and feeding on mistletoe, young birds were also chasing each other and even landing on nearby vineyard fences. A lifer for us and an awesome experience. eBird checklist
