HI Stevehapp
I have seen the Brown Honeyeaters at the bridge but have not been able to get a shot yet really nice shots.


Good onya Steve, how did you find the outing mate?
I went on sunday with the Mackay bird observers club, took a lot of shots but no keepers.
The morning was informative and fun.

Two great shots, steve. Those Brown HEs frustrated me in QLD. They wouldn't sit still.... Thanks for sharing.

Tassie, i love the outings with the bird club. I always have a great time, any good photos is a bonus!
smee, try along the southern edge of the sandspit between the river and the trees there. They usually hang out there.
thanks george.
I reckon Browns are easier to photograph than yellow-faced. they are hyperactive those little @#$@Q%'s.. :)

Nice sharp pictures, Steve but damned if I know how anyone gets bird shots when marching about with a bird club group - a great social occasion nonetheless! ;)

Great shots Steve!Love the toning backgrounds and feather detail. - another good spot for both these birds is that stretch beside HiFert on the other side of the river.

Great shots - I'll have to look out for the dove. I'd love to go on an outing with the group, but I don't think any of the outings are compatible with school hours. I've been to Stockton though - there were a lot of wattlebirds last time I went
