Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve Bird Walk

Rufous Fantail - a very common spp at MCSR
Russet tailed Thrush
As part of an arrangement with Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Sunshine Coast Council, Birdlife Australia has organised a series of morning bird walks. The first one was held on the 27 December, 2017. We had two mothers and their children who were guided around the reserve by Robyn Combes and a group of 8 adults who were herded around by myself and Paul Fraser. It was, I believe, a very good beginning.
