Male Cassowary and 2 6 week old chicks daily at Cassowary House, though this 
season so far the male is still quite touchy and not relaxed, I wonder if the 
trauma of losing 3 chicks early on has upset him?
Victoria's Riflebird male now in heavy moult and looks woeful.
Great views of Blue-faced Parrotfinch at Mt Lewis yesterday, in beautiful 
condition, we saw 10+ birds. The central rectrices extend a few mm beyond the 
rest of the tail, more striking in these ones than in New Guinea I must say.
A weird heron on a small pond 8 km N of Mareeba looks like a Pied x ?????, I 
think Keith Fisher has some pix on his Kingfisher Park blog. 
Good birding
