Scrubwren shows out in the shadows
Trundled up to Paluma Dam yesterday for the first time since Cyclone Yasi blasted through 16 months ago. Much quieter and forest system recovery years away. But Large-billed Scrubwren (Sericornis magnirostra) still darting about in the shadows.
And Grey-headed Robin (Heteromyias cinereifrons) busy here and there.
Shining Bronze-Cuckoo (Chalcites lucidus) hunting from dam rocks.
Here's a Little Bronze-Cuckoo (was Gould's)(Chalcites minutillus), in Tyto the other day, for comparison.
