Bird List for Cape Tribulation in the Daintree Rainforest

Cape Tribulation is a great place for birdwatching. You can relax while birding from the B&B cottage verandah, binos in one hand and red wine in the other. The CAssowary drops by on a regular basis:

'Our afternoon's quiet reverie was interrupted by two snooping cassowaries, stomping through the rainforest, who crossed the creek directly below the balcony. Seeing these beautiful, haughty birds in their habitat was quite startling - a real privilege. Undoubtedly the highlight of our visit.' John Wells
