Bird List

The bird list has been kindly amassed for me by various knowledgeable and keen birders who have stayed at Possum Valley.  Foremost amongst them are Chris and Mandy Coxon , owners of Mossman George Bed & Breakfast.  If you want a fabulous place to stay down the coast, whose hosts are friendly and bird wise, check it out.  All the birds on the list have been seen at Possum Valley.  Perhaps you can add to the list.
