Immature Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher (Tanysiptera sylvia) hints at
colours to come with adulthood as it shows out briefly on lower slopes
beside road up to Wallaman Falls. Quest for older birds continued
yesterday without any further sightings.
Less colourful but more reliably present, Pale-yellow Robin (Tregellasia
capito) turns up to keep an eye on things.
Also usually present in numbers but not often popping out from high cover
on the upper slopes, Brown Gerygone (Gerygone mouki).
