Hi Martin

Far, far better than a photo, just pop down to your friendly bird
bookshop in Melbourne ( no names so I don;t break the "no advertising 
code" !!!) and buy a copy (or two, one for your friend) of the
"Turacos of the World" It was published very recently by the above mentioned
bookshop owner and Notornis Publications.

I have only seen the flier for the book but it has the most wonderful
by Bill Cooper.  He is surely one of the finest bird artists of all time.



PS If you are feeling generous, please buy a copy for me, too.
PPS Don't forget your credit card, you'll need it. 
They are several grand a copy, but worth every cent!
