Hi All,

I spent a week in the Cairns area from 13-20 October, birding most of the well 
know places. Highlights were as follows:

Centenary Lakes - Cicadabird, Black Butcherbird and Radjah Shelduck
Michaelmas Cay - Common and Black Noddies, Sooty, Bridled, Roseate and 
Black-naped Terns, Great and Lesser Frigatebirds, Brown and Red-footed Boobies.
Mt Lewis - Most of the highland rainforest specialties including Fernwren, two 
parties of Chowchillas, Bower's Shrike-Thrush, Victoria's Riflebird etc
Carr Rd - The early arriving Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfishers, Noisy Pitta, 
Pied Monarch and Yellow-breasted Boatbill
Hurricane Rd - Squatter Pigeons
Daintree Cruise with Daintree River Experience - Great-billed Heron, Black 
Bittern, Papuan Frogmouth, Shining Flycatcher, Large-billed Gerygone, Little 
Cassowary House - Southern Cassowary (with young), Grey Goshawk, Superb 
Fruit-Dove, Wompoo Fruit-Dove
Cairns Esplanade - the usual waders plus a Broad-billed Sandpiper.
Longlands Gap - Golden Bowerbird

Missed a few things that I searched for including Black-throated Finch, 
White-eared Monarch, Little Kingfisher and Mangrove Robin, but otherwise a 
fairly successful trip.

If anyone wants any more info on particular records or sites, please feel free 
to drop me an email.

Good Birding!
