Lyrebird
 

Superb Lyrebird


On the way down the gully to check Maximum and Minimum temperatures in preparation for revegetation I stepped up onto a log and saw this lyrebird feeding.
As I stood and watched it continued to feed scraping through the light soil with its huge feet. The photograph was taken in the evening, about 5 PM in late may so the light was failing.
The bird is a female or young male, lacking the distinctive lyre shape feathers of the mature male.
At this time of year the Lyre Birds are calling at dusk and dawn.

Late August and the nest of twisted sticks is in use. Flat on the ground, although set well up on the steep side of the gully, it seems a prime target for fox predation.
