Where to find Birds in north-east Queensland
Jo Wieneke

Written by Chris Dahlberg  who is a long term Port Douglas/Daintree resident and birdwatching tourism pioneer. Graham Pizzey dubbed him "The Birdman of Daintree" after a visit in 1994.
Chris became interested in birdwatching around 1991 when he met Jo Wieneke researching her field guide for "Where to find birds in north-east Queensland". Just after then Chris met Lloyd Nielsen who was researching his field guide on "Birds of Queensland's Wet Tropics and Great Barrier Reef Islands" and his Daintree Book.

Chris has won local awards for innovations in the mobile field and these days produces mobile phone apps whilst keeping a weather-eye on his beloved pursuit of watching Daintree birds.
