Chris Sanderson has asked about the status of Emus on Bribie Island (50 km north of Brisbane, SEQ). Over the last twelve years the population of 15-20 individuals has dwindled to just one and the last time I saw this bird was in May 2009. However, reports still persist and I heard of a sighting a few weeks ago of three birds. I have no idea who, or how reliable, the observer is but it would be difficult to misidentify an Emu wouldn't it? (Note that although I've never seen an Ostrich on Bribie Island a tame Peacock goes walkabout every now and then.)

Cheers - Trevor.
