Birdwatching season is in full tilt.

As a Helmeted Fiarbird chased an Eastern Koel over the house this morning I was reminded that it is birdwatching season in the Daintree.
The Eastern Koel is a very large cuckoo that migrates from up north and puts it's eggs in friarbird's nests. Both bird species have loud raucous voices and it is almost comical to see and hear the chase that goes on as the cuckoos are driven off.
It appears that my commercial colleagues are so busy with the visiting birdwatchers that they cannot keep their wildlife bulletins up to date or for that matter keep their bulletins interesting with the birdwatching season in full tilt.
