Pied Imperial Pigeon - Photo by Birds Australia NQ
This month marks the start of the period when our skies are alive with the Pied Imperial Pigeons. Their Coohoo sound is heard while they feed on rainforest fruits. It is also the start of the breeding season which usually occurs between August and April.
Butterflies are becoming a common sight at present as the flush of plant growth feeds increasing numbers of caterpillars, while the lowlands of the Daintree is one of the best places in Australia to observe moths and stunning butterflies.
