Shrike-thrush shows up near falls
Black bill identifies male Bower's Shrike-Thrush (Colluricincla boweri) near Wallaman Falls today. Had not seen species in the area till this month, though altitude (above 400m) and rainforest habitat always seemed right. Slightly cooler temperatures lately may have played a part.
From an earlier stint in almost the same small patch of forest, Yellow-breasted Boatbill (Machaerirhynchus flaviventer). Not too sharp, but pretty enough.
