Forest of Tranquillity

Red-browed Firetail

We arrived at the Forest at the same time as two large busses full of third-graders, so much for the tranquillity – though the children were much quieter than one of the teachers. So instead of walking the trails behind the children, we stayed at the picnic area eating ice-cream and watching the superb fairy-wrens, white-browed scrubwrens, and red-browed finches eating the seeds on the bird tables. A brown cuckoo-dove and several bar-shouldered doves came down for a while and two brush-turkeys were engaged in an argument on the lawn.
