Fairy-Wrens are tiny birds.  Like a large insect.  The blue version takes the eye but this bird is never still for the camera, even these seemed familiar with the campers.

The birds I know as Plovers. Are they Masked Lapwings?  Imagine their indignation consternation on living near a walking path.  The uproar is almost constant.  And a mobile group is different to the usual solo bird.

Could this be a mature Crimson Rosella?  Could we be camping in wonderland?

Laughing Kookaburra - the most massive of our kingfishers and best known. These are youngsters.
We can take their laughter for granted yet it is very bizzare.  A benign stretch of bushland will suddenly erupt in unheard of sound effects.

Heirloom embroidery, Australiana style.  Gum blossom in detail.
Could be the Eastern Rosella where a hundred per cent accuracy of colour was not the point of the exercise.

Campers visiting a spot near Chichester Dam would very likely know and love a flock of Australian King Parrots who front up seeking attention.
The local said over 150 different birds had been identified by birdwatchers and thought bird numbers had not declined there.

My wish to you is that in your life time you will drive down a country road and find the countryside a true delight.
