Hi Birding Ausers,

Over the last couple of years there has been a well reported single Helmeted 
Guinea Fowl at Samsonvale cemetry - the last of a few released there some years 
ago.  When I was at the cemetry about 6 months ago the bird did not come up and 
say hello so I just assumed that natural attrition was at work and the Guinea 
Fowl had gone the way of others in it's party.

Not so!  I was there last night on dusk and walking up the Samford side of the 
fence surrounding the cemetry when I heard the familia chukking of a HGF.  I 
looked up into the tree to find 7 birds happily roosting there.  Not a gripping 
report, I know, but I kind of like these silly birds.  Is this a case of 
another feral dump or the establishment of a feral population?
