Subject:        birding-aus Bellbird habitat query

In a newsletter of a conservation organisation (not a specifically
ornithological one) there's a general account of a field trip in which
reference is made to hearing bellbirds followed by the statement:

        "They are difficult to spot in the dull light of the rainforest."

I have regarded Bellbirds as a strictly Eucalyptus forest species.  Can
anyone confirm that they also inhabit rainforest?

Syd - are you referring to Bell Miner or Crested Bellbird? I am guessing Bell 
Miner.Crested Bellbird would never occur in rainforest.
