Females and juveniles are rufous on the back wings and tail. This one is getting black on the back so would be a young male I reckon.


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

A local spotted a Pacific Baza here in Canberra the other day. It is the first record of one here and i was lucky to find it on Friday. Not sure what it was doing here but glad i got it.

The Green Catbird gets its name from its cat-like wailing call. They are difficult to see among the foliage in the treetops and I was gobsmacked to find this one in a tree at the edge of the forest. I was equally gobsmacked that the R3 managed to lock on and AF on the eye through the foliage as this was such a fleeting encounter.:-)

A Satin Bowerbird also taken in the Lamington National Park.

Cheers

Dennis

Male (above) and female Shining Flycatchers. Several of them were chasing each other around at Walker Creek in Litchfield National Park.

Thanks Ulrike, the day before we'd spent ages at Fogg Dam trying to get them to come in and yesterday at Walker Creek there were about half a dozen calling and chasing each other almost around our heads.:-D

Amazing birds. Beautifully photographed Pippan.
Such deep, clear colours.
Interesting how different they are and complete opposite to our wrens where the female is the prettier here . Well IMO.
That coat on the male really does shine.

Thanks Richard and yes, I agree. There are few bird species where the female is prettier than the male but this is one of them.
