Hi All

Next weekend - 7-11.2 - Rob & I are heading to T'ville. We were
wondering if anyone out there has any hot spots for certain species they
would care to share?
We plan to visit the Common (is it worth it?),stay at Paluma and
probably drive up to Ingham and Mission Beach. We are particularly
interested in the following species - sorry if some seem too fanciful,
pls advise if we are 'dreaming'!! It may be that someone knows of a
swamp area or local location that may provide possibilities... I'm
trying not to be too greedy, but can't really help myself!
Great-billed Heron
Black Bittern
White-browed Crake (we know about Tyto)
Red-chested Button-quail
Red-backed Button-quail
Squatter Pigeon
Rufous Owl
Barking Owl
Papuan Frogmouth
Lovely Fairy-wren
Bar-breasted Honeyeater
Rufous-throated Honeyeater
Mangrove Robin
Mangrove Golden Whistler
Black-throated Finch
Zitting Cisticola (do they come down this far?)
Yellow White-eye (believe there may be a location sth of T'ville?)
Red-necked Crake (ditto)
Masked Owl
Tooth-billed Bowerbird
Crimson Finch
Blue-faced Parrot-finch (ditto again?)
We'd appreciate any help with these - and any other help anyone may
think is useful for hard to get species - and thankyou in advance for
your time!
