I still don’t know the name of these birds. A camper told me they are called Bishops. However, I believe a Bishop is orange in colour. Would love to know. I have only seen them at Lake Boondooma in Queensland.

They are called Struthidea cinerea – Lousy Jacks or Apostle birds because they are usually full of lice and/or live in large groups of roughly twelve, they share the nest and raising young is a group effort. Very noisy opportunistic birds. In most of Northern Qld. Real rough heads, but I kinda like them! Good shot!
Thank you SO MUCH Carmel, for the information, the visit and the comment. I truely appreciate it. Robyn :)
