It’s been a bout a month since the newly hatched chicks arrived. Since then, they have doubled in size and their colour pattern is gradually changing from the rusty head and striped body to the rather uniformly brown that will adorn the chicks until they are mature.
David and family moved to Kuranda, Queensland in 2002, following retirement from CSIRO Canberra, Australia. David, Barbara and an assortment of wildlife live in a rainforest setting. It is their first experience living in the tropics.
David's major interest is Entomology. He continues research in the Orthopteroid insects and is keenly interested in the biology of the rainforest.
This blog is a narrative of observations made in and around Kuranda.
