Yesterday we headed south toward Sarus Cranes and we found them. We also made a stop at the famous Curtain Fig Tree in Yungaburra (impossible to capture in a photo, picture the tree in the movie, Avatar). There we found another lifer bird. We had missed Bower’s Shrike-thrush on the mountain the other day and Robert spotted one near the tree. Sweet!

We also picked up the wild and “tickable” Helmeted Guineafowl south of Mareeba. And then... after several failed attempts over the years. I finally saw a White-browed Crake. Yes, I had missed that bird on a few occasions, but this one in Julatten came out for me and I am grateful!

Birds. Peace. Love. Earth. Laughter. Music.
