Hi Darrell
            Talking to Klaus, who knows Iron Range particularly well, the
day after your post, he tells me that the breeding population arrives there
later than our Wet Tropics Area. Talking to Richard Jordan, Emu Tours, today
and I am told of a Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher that was in the beer
garden of the Mount Molloy Pub, near Kingfisher Park. There is a moral here
somewhere but I can't seem to put my finger on it.
