Hi Folks,
A single Pied Imperial Pigeon returned to the Lodge on 12th September which is about the normal date for returning birds. What was unusual about this bird was that it has a grey head. It has been seen several times since and the head is still grey. A photo is on our blog page( along with what appears to be a giant juvenile Black-necked Stork in Cairns. We also put up a couple of photos of Graceful Honeyeater in light of the recent discussion about these and Yellow-spotted Honeyeater.
