Superb Lyrebird (male)

Recently I posted shots of a female lyrebird I was fortunate to come across quite close at 1000 steps in Upper Ferntree Gully. This week I was visiting Sherbrooke Forest and heard a male lyrebird singing.  I thought I was going to miss seeing it as two very loud  runners (both by sound and the colours they wore) came along the path and the bird stopped singing as soon as the people passed by. However the bird started up again and I was able to pinpoint where it was between the trees and bushes. This one was further away from me and I couldn’t get a clear front shot of it. However you can see its tail feathers.  I hope one day to get a shot of one with its tail feathers up on display and it in full song.
