Golden Bowerbird without highlights the highlight

Two trips up to Birthday Creek Falls, Paluma, didn't quite get the male Golden Bowerbird (Amblyornis newtonianus) where I wanted.

But yesterday's effort did produce images without the annoying white highlights created by camera flash hitting the yellow plumage. Top  image, ISO6400, background denoised a bit.. Next two, ISO3200, no denoise.

Well, some noise, from me carrying on several long chats to one of my favourite individual birds.

Flash shows the bird's beauty, but creates unwanted highlights.

Takes a Sheila to show Aussie birders Satin rarity

Oooh, look! What's that shiny black and white bird? It's so smooth and black on back and head. Could it be a rarely seen Satin Fly...
