The second (after Alastair) suggestion for "Queensland Cassowary" and this was the letter that had us stumped.  The slight difficulty with your reasoning is that the designer of the frieze Eirene Mort, while living in the UK for a short while,  was as dinky-di as they come, being born in Woolhara and dying many years later in Bowral.  vide

I take it to be a "Q"  = 'Queensland Cassowary', my reasoning being that in 1902 the chooms (or those of them that illustrate alphabets) would hardly have caught up with federation.
