Regarding my recent request for the Albany Island
records of Magnificent Riflebird, my thanks to Bob
Forsyth who raided his archives of Emu and sent me
what I needed.

I now have another more obscure query and I am
hoping some scholars out there can help me.
Reading the historical text the Magnificent
Riflebird on Cape York is called Jagoonya by the
local aborigines. Can anyone advise me what the
name would mean and which language or cultural
group it would come from?

Thanks and good birding.

Phil Gregory
