Rainbow Bee-eaters at Stoneleigh

Post by sburke » Sat Aug 25, 2012 6:00 pm

While working out in the paddock this afternoon (25/08/12) I first heard and then saw seven Rainbow Bee-eaters flying through the treetops around me. They hung around until dark as I could still hear them out in the paddock when I was sitting on the veranda having a wine after finishing for the day.

Also seen today on our property-

Grey Fantail
Laughing Kookaburra
Torresian Crow
Restless Flycatcher

Striated Pardalote
