Having only managed an all too short 1-hour sortie through BirdLand on my first trip I paid another much more leisurely visit yesterday to see all the species I missed first time and to really spend time trying to get some good photos. Below some of both categories.

White-bellied Go-away-bird widespread in east and central Africa



Western Plantain-eater widespread in west and central Africa, first cousin of the go-away-birds



Nicobar Pigeon closest living relative of the Dodo, found on small islands and in coastal regions from the Nicobar Islands, east through the Malay Archipelago, to the Solomons and Palau



Scaled Quail common bird of the south-western US to central Mexico



male Siamese Fireback from south-east Asia and a national bird of Thailand



female Grey Peacock-Pheasant from eastern Asia and national bird of Myanmar



male Crested Partridge from southern Myanmar and Thailand, Malaysia, Sumatra and Borneo



Yellow-shouldered Amazon from northern Colombia and Venezuela



Eurasian Stone-curlew member of the Thick-knee family



Tawny Frogmouth - Gordon, I'd much rather be seeing this one at Moggill Ferry Wetland <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon/lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->



male and female Bare-faced Curassow of south-eastern South America





male and female Helmeted Curassow an Endangered Species from the eastern Andes of Colombia and Venezuela

Great photos Neil!
You'll enjoy photographing the birds here in Oz including the Frogmouth!
