Gooday all

Yeh, that brings back memories, of a little kid hanging on the wire of
wood framed cages staring at heaps of unusual animals and birds during
annual visits to the David Fleay reserve at Burleigh, SE Qld, during the
mid to late 60's. I remember seeing the tall Mr Fleay walking around the
place but never spoke to him.

Hi Michael,

I too have fond memories of meeting David Fleay at his Burleigh Fauna 
Sanctuary.  At the time he was caring for two very noisy orphaned 
Channel-billed Cuckoo chicks.  The Edward's Lyrebird is not the same as
Albert's Lyrebird.  The Edward's is the northern race of the Superb
found commonly in the granite country north from the Hunter Valley.  It
previously been considered to be a separate species.
