I've been hoping to catch a glimpse of one of these birds for a long time, years in fact. For the past 3 years I've tried to get up to Green Mountain in the Lamington National Park but have been foiled every time one way or another.

Yesterday we got there at the right time and were blessed to see many of these beautiful birds. Along with the Eastern Whipbirds I also got photos of after so long it was a very good day :)

Wow! Love the colour of this fellow. That first shot is a stunna. Have you just gotten back from an adventure outing? You seem to have posted quite a few new shots these last couple of days.

Thanks Iggy. We drove out to the Lamington National Park 2 days ago and spent a day there. All the photos I'm posting at present are front that 1 day.
