I love these birds!
Oh whoops, here it is: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/140...
I think you actually have to type in 'National Park' otherwise it doesn't work. Or maybe 'Carnarvon National Park'. Here's one of mine - take a look at the map and see what you think. (It shows the postcode at least!) : )
Tried Carnarvon Gorge first but no luck.
OH, hahaha! I have a bunch of pics from Carnarvon Gorge, if you type in 'Carnarvon Gorge National Park' it should work.
Just edited to just Queensland and it worked.
These were in Carnarvon Gorge, Queensland! The map would not recognise that and put it down as NSW????? Did not know what to do to change it ShannaB
I never saw Apostlebirds when I lived in Sydney. I only saw them for the first time last year when I went to inland Queensland. I love them, they're crazy! : )
Thanks Leuba. Yes they are hilarious to watch. Entertain for hours!
These are one of the funniest birds I've seen in action. Thanks for sharing this Kerry. Lovely photo !
