Wompoo Fruit-Dove

Heard the very distinctive deep call of a Wompoo Fruit-Dove on my walk yesterday and, amazingly, caught sight of it high up in the rainforest canopy.  The call sounds just like the name - Wom-Poo!  It's not a very good shot as I had to zoom in so much - if you check my archives there are some better earlier photos there.

PS  The Cassowary was back again yesterday.  Hadn't seen him (her?) for a few days and thought it might have moved away but it was back checking out the Carambola (Five-Corner) fruit which are just starting to ripen.   We seem to have named it 'Junior'!
