ANZ 5: Brisbane birds

A walk across the University of Queensland campus, and then a walk round suburban Brisbane (Indooroopilly, Chelmer, Yeerongpilly, Dutton Park), revealed the a good selection of birds, some of them shown here: pelican, egret, darter (I think), cockatoo, cormorant, butcherbird, and scrub turkey.

As well as birds, there was a fine display of flowering trees and vines: the jacaranda is past its best, but the poinciana was wonderful, and there were flame trees, frangipani, bougainvillea, and many others of which I don’t know the names. Here is a small taster.
