Paradise comes to Daintree...(Australia): 15 Oct 2010

We arrived in Daintree, fresh from "ticking off" Cassowary in the morning at Cassowary House in Kuranda, and ready for some more lowland rainforest birds. What we got was little activity in Cape Tribulation National Park, with one very notable exception: an early, early Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher fresh in from Papua New Guinea. It was a total shock to find one at this time, as they are generally a late, late October arrival in Queensland. But no one was complaining!
