Additional species rarely recorded:

Lesser Frigatebird, White-faced Heron, Black Bittern, Australian White Ibis, Royal Spoonbill, Masked Lapwing, Black-breasted Buzzard, Brown Falcon, Collared Sparrowhawk, Sarus Crane, Gull-billed Tern, Oriental Cuckoo, Brush Cuckoo, Painted Buttonquail, House (Little) Swift, White-throated Nightjar, Torresian Crow.

Bold type denotes an Australian endemic species; those marked * are far north Queensland endemic species.

All species listed have been seen in the gardens, or within 4km of the house along Black Mountain Road.

It is possible to record many others by visiting other habitats within a 2 hour drive e.g. Daintree, Mount Molloy, Julatten, Mount Carbine, Atherton Tablelands, Mareeba and the Cairns area. A Far North Queensland birding circuit to give a chance with most of the special birds would commence at Cairns, come to Kuranda, then visit Mareeba, the Atherton Tablelands, Julatten and the Daintree.

We are happy to assist with advice about where and how to find species, and can organise expert professional guiding if required. Please contact us for further details: Phil & Sue Gregory
