Another Camping Trip to Charlie Moreland Campground, Imbil State Forest, QLD.

After our camping trip to Charlie Moreland and our visit to Booloumba we went home to attend to a few things then we returned to Charlie Moreland for two nights to show this wonderful place to some friends of ours. 

We saw a female and a male Paradise Riflebird in the morning and a female in the afternoon. They were feeding on the fruit of the Celerywood tree Polyscias elegans. The fruit of Celerywood is eaten by many birds and the seed is spread from the droppings of Pied Currawongs.

There were quite a few Rainbow Bee-eaters passing through high up in the trees. Although not the best photos I'm rather amused by the bee-eater imitating a torpedo.

Back in the campground, this Kookaburra was keeping an eye on us while crunching its catch.
