Hi fellow birders,
I'm thinking of heading up to Cairns in June and wondering if anyone knows
what if any birds I might find on the Cairns Esplanade?  Also I was reading
that the Victoria's Riflebird displays during the mating season, but does
this mean that it also does other displays at other times of the year as
well, but not the elaborate ones for mating?  And I read that some of the
guides do not look for the Golden Bowerbird before August. Does this mean
that it is very difficult to find at other times?
I'd love some feedback,
