Birds of Mt Carbine Caravan Park

If Looks could Kill : Blue-winged Kookaburra
Well it’s very windy this morning here at Mount Carbine Caravan Park lots of clouds about. We had a quick look for birds but we are also in a hurry as we have to pack up and head off to Cooktown, not a good combination when trying to spot birds.
The Great Bowerbird has been fantastic to watch here, he has only just started tending his bower so I will try to get more video footage when we come back on our return trip. He does some pretty groovy dance moves I would love to capture but missed out this time. Anthony also got some great photos. Some of the bird tours around the area bring their customers here as the birdlife is very reliable.

A sleeping Tawny Frogmouth

 

The Tawny Frogmouths are always perched near the lights over the loos…..they don’t have to go far for insects at night time.
The owner here, Nicky also keeps an eye on what birds are where according to flowering and fruiting trees so it’s a really nice relaxing place to hang out for a few days.
And if you have a cat in an enclosure……well all the birds will just come to you to sound off their warnings🙄🙄
Have a great day whatever you are up to…..we are off to Cooktown shortly.
Cheers Steph and Anthony.
