Tasmanian birds

The other thing keeping me occupied here in Tasmania is the opportunity to sight birds that are not usually seen in Queensland. So far amongst a bunch of those I can't yet identify I have seen a flame robin at the Blowhole, a blue winged parrot near the dog line at Eaglehawke Neck and a New Holland Honeyeater at Port Arthur. Should have brought my field guide to Australian birds with me, but given I came via Moranbah didn't have much excess space for books. Doh. So, there is a swamp hen, wrens and shag type birds yet to be identified. Should keep me out of mischief.
