An interesting sighting yesterday here at Cassowary House, Kuranda (Q) was of an adult White-eared Monarch feeding on the ground in a shady flowerbed right by our front door. I had of course just been telling the visiting American group that this species is usually pretty arboreal and often seen sub-canopy or right up in the canopy, foraging along the outer extremities of large trees. I don't recall ever seeing one on the deck before, though they do sometimes come lower with feeding flocks. This one spent a couple of minutes poking about on the leaf mulch and landing on Calatheas there.
