It was a great pleasure to see a fledgling Rufous Owl with what I presume to be its female parent. After the cyclone it has been so easy to feel depressed but wonderful to see this breeding success. The Barking Owls which used to call my place home are now roosting in the middle of Yungaburra. Some trees which had just set fruit before the cyclone are now flowering again or will be soon. Fruit which survived the cyclone though is dropping from many trees as they attempt to recover from the stress. Some of this is providing food but much is just too immature and rotting. The Pied Monarchs at the Curtain Figtree have been much easier to see than when the area is fully vegetated.
