Regarding Andrew's note about Topknot Pigeons. Over the past couple of weeks
I've seen unusually large numbers of Topknot Pigeons in the Sunshine Coast
lowlands, especially about the Maroochy River and its tributaries. I suspect
it has something to do with camphor laurel fruiting and would appreciate any
Also, last night I had great views of a Sooty Owl in the Mapleton Forest

Hi all

A tour through the Mt Mellum area of the Sunshine Coast hinterland today
resulted in some nice sightings including at least ten Barred cuckoo-shrikes
in a fruiting Ficus obliqua (my spies tell me there were double that number
in the tree just 2 weeks ago). Also observed a male Regent bowerbird feeding
in a Polyscias elegans. Other species seen included Grey goshawk, Emerald
dove, Catbird, King parrot, Brown cuckoo-dove, Varied triller and Chestnut
breasted manikins feeding young.""
Back in Nambour, there was a flock of 30 Topknot pigeons.
