Birds are a-nesting.

I had to go to Brisbane via Morayfield Shopping Centre to return something at Coles, and I took the short cut from King Street, behind the shops onto Morayfield Road and was most surprised to see the hundred, perhaps thousands of birds nesting in the trees.  

Later on in the day with camera in hand I stopped on Esme Street and took the following photos.

Mostly it is ibis, with so many apparently nesting on the ground, while other birds are in the trees above.  

Also there were pelicans that appeared to be nesting too.   Quite a sight!









(The birds are roosting between King Street and the Caboolture River - near the lake that looks like a boot or an old telephone, but there are probably many roosting areas in the neighbourhood.
