Thanks David and Jill
Apparently it is legal to stuff and sell Regent honeyeaters in Queensland IF
you have all your government paperwork in order (not an easy task anymore,
thank God).  I notified the Wildlife Response Unit of the Queensland Police
and they said they would make enquiries to see that everything was in order
legally.  It is a large and well-respected antique store and I wouldn't be
surprised if they have the relevant permit, probably pre-1974.  By the look
of the birds in the cabinet (which also included a Gouldian finch, some sort
of munias and waxbill finches and lorikeets), I can only say that
taxidermists have very little understanding of "jizz".  Or, to put it
another way, they frequently stuff up their stuffing up!  Keep smiling
