Morning in the Rainforest

A three-quarter moon and a cacophony of sound woke me this morning. I haven’t seen most of these birds – birding in a rain forest is damned difficult to say the least – but at least a dozen different species are singing, cawing, squawking and booming right outside our cabin. And last night after dinner I heard and felt giant bats winging by me – we saw them in Cairns as well and they’re quite large, about the size of a ground squirrel with an 18″ wing span!
