G'day Roy,

The stormbirds have been calling round Mt Gravatt over the last week or
so, and I saw my first dollarbird for the season at lunchtime today in a
park on the Spring Hill fringe of the Brisbane CBD.  It very nicely flew
overhead displaying its cash and then posed on top of a threadbare
making sure all and sundry could admire the colour of its bill and

Regards, Laurie.
