I went on a private 1 day bird watching tour in the Port Douglas/Mt Lewis/Julatten area with Doug Herrington. I saw a great diversity of birds, many for the first time. Most were close enough for good photography. Doug was an excellent knowledgeable guide who knew exactly where to go to find an array of endemic birds. We saw, and got excellent photos, of golden bowerbird, scarlet honeyeater, yellow robin, yellow honeyeater, northern fantail, and even the eclectic parrots that are now breeding in Port Douglas. Many others too. Doug was affable and light hearted, making the day easy and fun.

amazing day spent with Doug. Saw nearly 80 different birds for the day. Dough's knowledge of the birds and the places to find different birds made for a great day. His patience while we took photos really helped as well. His ability to know which birds were in which area and then to be able to call the birds helped to make it a memorable day. Would highly recommend spending a day with Doug if you want to see lots of different birds.

We just spent a great day with Doug. Despite a very wet morning we still recorded over ninety species including some lifers for me: Lovely fairy wren, Macleays and Bridled HE, Papuan frogmouth, and others like Australian bustards and double eyed fig parrots Doug is extremely knowledgeable and a great person to spend the day with.

I did a full day of birding with Doug chasing 10 bird species in the rainforest on Mt Lewis. The cost of $350 for the full day was good value. Doug’s knowledge of the area and the calls/behaviour of the birds ensured I found the species I was after including two that were particularly difficult due to the time of year. Once the main targets were out of the way Doug added in some great birding around Julatten and on the way back in to Port Douglas. Doug had a great attitude throughout- nothing was too much trouble.

I read an article where someone had seen 90 birds, so I expected Doug to beat that.... and he did. We saw 93 birds. Of these about 80 are birds I have never seen before in the wild including Tawny Frogmouths (4), Papuan Frogmouth, Bustards, various herons, various kingfishers, various parrots etc. When I return, I will definitely take another of his trips. One of the best days in Queensland. Highly recommended for animal lovers. You will need binoculars or a zoom lense.
