Regent-Bowerbird

 

Sightings of the above ‘Regent Bowerbird’ are usually very rare. This pic was my sole sighting over 7 days at Crescent Heads, ‘it was there one moment and gone the next’. Reportedly one of the quietest Bowerbirds, seldom calling away from the bower, usually just soft grating calls.

I would spend about an hour each morning photographing the local bird life that were relatively few in number due to the winter months and I am sure would be more plentiful during spring. Most mornings were spent at a variety of areas surrounding the Crescent Head beach, mainly north and south sides, although on one morning I took a drive to Hat Head and walked around the headland, but being closer to mid-day I only saw a few birds in the Hat Head National Park. Birds that were new to me included the ‘White-cheeked-Honeyeater’, (I thought it was a Yellow Faced Honeyeater like we have down here in the Morton National Parks.) Nor was I familiar with the ‘Fantail-Cuckoo’, the ‘Masked-Lapwing’, the ‘Brown-Thornbill’ and the ‘Rufous-Whistler’. A very pretty bird and there were many of them was the ‘Welcome-swallow’. I hope you enjoy looking at the different species.

I would like to acknowledge bird enthusiast Charles Dove who helped me identify the various bird types.

Best to click and make the pics bigger
