First morning at O'Reilly's Retreat in a world-heritage listed Lamington National Park, Queensland, Australia, was raining. I was caught completely unawares, standing under cover, waiting on breakfast time, when two spectacular Regents Bowerbirds flew nearby. Even in the rain, I should have had my camera with me!
After that jaw-dropping moment of setting my eyes upon them I had to leave and rush to my room some distance away for my camera, in the hope of gaining any 'evidence'.
I'd hoped that over the following three days I might see them again, but not. Maybe the time of year with the weather getting cooler they were heading on down to the valleys where it is a little warmer and protected.
King Parrot - maybe a juvenile, or female?
noticed it was banded
