My first bird of 2006 was two Bush Stone-Curlews on the footpath as we were
seeing off our guests at 12:45am on New Years Day. Highlight of the day was 41
Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo's feeding on the ground near the entrance
to "famous" Anderson Park here in Townsville - those who have read The Big
Twitch may recall this is where Sean Dooley got Oriental Cuckoo (#688). What I
presume is the 20 year old bower Sean mentions has since been abandoned.
Yesterday a Great Bowerbird was busy erecting a new bower a few hundred metres
