I love seeing Brolgas around on the Tablelands. It takes me back to Western Queensland and the excitement of seeing a small family. Of enjoying watching the red capped heads and grey bodies casually move around the landscape. Now any farmer on the Tablelands will complain about how much of a pest they can be. They flock to paddocks in their hundreds and feast on corn or seed, a dinner party they think has been put on for them. Dispite this I still love seeing them and the novelty of see so many well that is something I appreciate.

At them moment the brolgas are usually seen in freshly harvested, disked or ploughed paddocks. They are having a lovely time feasting on what nature brings them, well what the farmer's work brings them.
