BirdLife Northern Queensland welcome their newest committee member at a very enjoyable committee meeting on Saturday, 3 July. The meeting was held near Malanda on Graham Harrington’s verandah. For those committee members not able to attend in person, we had a Zoom option for video teleconferencing.

The meeting was both productive and delightful because of the numerous birds flying through or dropping into the meeting, as the below image of a Macleay’s Honeyeater on Peter Valentine’s head shows. Even those on Zoom could see the bird high jinks! With Victorias Riflebird, Pale Yellow Robin, Grey-headed Robin and Golden Whistler popping by regularly, we were easily distracted.

It’s amazing we made it through the agenda and had a very productive meeting! Special thanks to Graham and Gill Harrington for hosting our meeting in their slice of birding paradise.
