A short boardwalk from Centenary Lakes leads to Flecker Botanical Gardens, usually teaming with Butterflies, like the Cairns Birdwing….. Better luck next time I guess.
We couldn’t believe how close we got to the Double-eyed Fig Parrots at Centenary Lakes. We also couldn’t believe how out in the open they were, we have been looking and looking in all the fruiting fig trees with no luck and thought this would be an impossible bird to see, let alone get fantastic photos and video off.
We don’t know what the tree was that they were munching in but it was quite sparse of leaves which made for great viewing, a male Mistletoe bird also came in a few times for a snack.

How time flies……Tomorrow we are off on the big jet plane to Thailand, we still haven’t come to grips with it yet but guess we will have one hell of a reality check when we get to the airport🙄🙄
