Thrilled to find you!

Good morning. I live at St Lucia in Brisbane, a suburb close to the city. Loved birds always, but no expert by any means. Thrilled to see a family of Superb Fairy Wrens on the weekend, only minutes walk from the city, beside a busy road!
Looking forward to being educated and enjoying banter with other lovers of these amazing creatures!

Hi MK,

Welcome to the forum. I, too, live close to Brisbane city (Paddington / Red Hill). Yes, it's lovely to see the birds so close to the city. Superb Fairy-wrens don't visit my house, but I think there are a few in the Roma St parklands.

Ithaca Creek in Red Hill is also a nice birding spot. I've seen pheasant coucals, common koels, a white-faced heron, a royal spoonbill, one of the pied cormorants (can't remember if it was little or standard), and a great egret. Also, there are always moorhens and pacific black ducks there.

I look forward to hearing more about the birds that you see around Brisbane.
