Agree with you fully about the reds; found out the hard way when we had the irruption of Scarlet Honeyeaters down here in Victoria a couple of years ago... you have done very well there Dennis.

Dennis these are beautiful. Magnificent colours on the male.
Really lovely setting. Grass Trees are lovely in their own rights and these compliment each other

Lovely photos Richard, and didn't the Shrike Thrush let you get close.:-)

We once spent maybe 15-20 mins listening to a Grey Shrike Thrust going through its repertoire of melodious songs, it was such an captivating experience, second only to the Albert's Lyre Bird.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks Dennis
Yes they are fairly bold and literally stare you down.
They really are beautifully vocal. Captivating as you say.

We'd heard a knocking at first light but I could never find them, then today they came around during the day.
