The purpose of this birding trip was to tack down the Eclectus Parrots seen flying regularly in the morning around Port Douglas for the past 3 or so years. They appear to be living independently of any human help. From what I observed they are behaving much like those wild birds in Iron Range with the female guarding a nesting hollow whilst the male flies out and returns with food for her.
