I was rather surprised to see a magnificent riflebird yesterday not far up a 
tidal, mangrove lined estuary in the Weipa area.  The bird was a male and flew 
across the creek about 10m from where I was guiding (fishing) with some 
clients.  It then called several times as it disappeared in the thick bushes to 
which it was answered by another riflebird on the opposite bank (never seen).  
Are magnificent riflebirds common in mangroves, or is this some strange 
exception to the rule?
