The Cassowary male at the Canopy Treehouses has returned with one chick. I am not sure about the current state of play at Cassowary House Kuranda.

At Mt Hypipamee the sightings have become most irregular.

Etty Bay south of Innisfail is very reliable.

There have been regular sightings north of the Daintree river but my guests also report lots of people missing out.

Good luck with your Australian birding.
PS You are welcome to give me a ring when in the area for more up to date info on this and other species.

Australia together with my wife in December.

I have a few RFI for some birds that I really would enjoy to see during my

1. Southern Cassowary:

We will be in the Cairns area between 11:th-17:th December and I wonder if

are some sites that are more reliable than others. We are willing to travel
approx. 200 km from Cairns if necessary.

2. Chestnut Quail-thrush, Mallefowl and Banded Stilt:

We will be in Victoria the last week of our trip and will stay in Ouyen for
two nights. If you have some advise which areas

around Ouyen (and surroundings up to 150 km) would give us the best
possibilities to see the Quail-thrush and Mallefowl it would be very

Concerning Banded Stilt it seems that Lake Tutchewop could be worth
checking, but it is not many reports from Victoria for the moment.

If you have some further information about Banded Stilt I would be very

Thanks & Kind regards
