2 thoughts on “Butterflies – Cairns Birdwing Butterflies

  1. When I lived in N Queensland, Cairns birdwings used to fly into the garden. I didn’t have the correct Aristolochia planted so they didn’t stay. It was a joy to see them, though.

  2. I have 2 fencelines of aristolochia praevenosa which is the food for the Richmond Birdwing butterfly. We get the occasional birdwing – it is endangered and there was a push to plant more vines a few years back around the northern rivers of NSW.
