|With the camouflage it was easy to walk past these pretty birds|
As such this trip took me 10 hours west of where I live on the east coast of Australia into Western Queensland. I headed to a number of properties where I knew the Bourke's had been seen. The recent rains the area had received were much needed as the area had been in drought. Worryingly though the weather wasn't going to make for good photography and looked set to stay.
