More Apostlebirds

Apostlebird

Near the Granite Belt, Queensland, Australia

 Here are some more Apostlebird images. 

Thank you for the comments I received yesterday. I am curious that people haven't heard of these before. 

We can see them on country tracks south or north-west of Toowoomba, Queensland.

They are interesting in that they get around in family groups of 12. I usually just grab an image or two and don't study them too closely because I thought they are not very colourful and almost featureless. (To my narrowmindness) Looking at the photos from Japan, I realise how unique they are. I guess there are colourful parrots and honeyeaters in Australia to distract the attention of birders.
