Bird Nerd visits Queensland 09

Dawn on New Year's Day was quiet especially at the Maroochy Wetlands. Solo me saw a good crop of birds.

I wonder what this bird with a rufous fantail is called?
Ah yes. Rufous Fantail Rhipidura rufifrons
Plumed Whistling-duck Dendrocygna eytoni

Bar-shouldered Dove Geopelia humeralis

A family of Forest Kingfishers Todiramphus macleayii were eying off the real estate bargains.

The bird above is a Mangrove Gerygone Gerygone levigaster. The bird below is an immature.

It looks like a Grey Shrike-thrush but is a tad smaller and sounds different. The Australian Bird Identification Facebook page pointed me in the direction of a Little Shrike-thrush Collurcincla megarhyncha. Below are other images of the same bird.
