Some strange things have happened since the cyclone. Yesterday in my garden some 800 metres from any real rainforest a Whipbird was scrounging in the leaf litter, a Spotted Catbird was feeding on cherry tomatoes in the vege patch, a Black Duck was sitting on eggs near the base of a tree and a young black Dingo trotted out of the flower farm across the road and through my neighbours paddock to the creek. A Dollarbird was seen yesterday in what would normally be the middle of the rainforest but it is rather open at the moment. Tree-roos and possums which survived the first month and the cyclone now seem to be doing OK.
