Thanks to everyone that responded to my previous request about my upcoming trip 
to FNQ. We fly out on Friday for a week in cairns/Atherton with the family and 
then 12 days travelling with my parents and some friends as far north as iron 
range. I am now looking for any interesting sightings in the area, and some 
specific info on a few species (any time in the next few weeks would by find if 
things change).
Rufous owl - any currently roasting in the cairns area?
Spotted whistling-duck - I will try known sites around Lockhart river, but are 
there any floating about in other spots at the moment?
Golden bowerbird - I think this is the hardest of the wet tropic endemics (we 
are going on a commercial your on Mt Lewis so should get most of the rest). Are 
there any sites worth visiting where you have an increased chance of sightings 
(other than a bower which I am not asking for). I have seen at the crater in 
the past, but nowhere seems reasonably reliable.
Any other interesting things (such as vagrants around the esplanade) would also 
be a great help.
Thanks in advance.
