Aural morning in Daintree

Aural mornings at Wonga Beach.
Trillions of cicadas are giving a loud daytime chorus in their efforts to attract mates and 
keep predators at bay.
Earlier the raucous calls of Channel-billed Cuckoos came from the heavens and anywhere behind the beach the haunting calls of Pied Imperial Pigeons can be heard.

Beach Stone-curlew on the beach at Wonga.

Stunning early morning walk along Wonga Beach at low tide produced 
Beach Stone-curlew. Just south of Janbal Street.
Crocodiles: Be wary about crocodiles and stay away from the Daintree River mouth to the north of Pinnacle Village. Don't walk on the beach at high tide or go on the beach when it is dark.
