Thank you Jessss26 You make a good point about learning some of the bird calls early in your trip to the Daintree rainforest especially the Green Oriole call. I am glad you enjoyed the walk.

Chris Dahlberg is an authority on the Daintree birds and can spot them or recognize their calls immediately and with ease. Highly recommended to both novices and experts.

It was a pleasure to guide you again after 18 years and an honour to meet your children and show them some of Daintree's birds.
