I knew these hung around but I’d never been able to get really close to them. Imagine my surprise when three flew into our front garden recently, when I already had my camera in hand and was looking out the window! This one flew into the liquidamber opposite the window and watched me, the other two flew into other parts of the garden.
I believe this is a juvenile bower bird. Love the blue eyes!
If you’d like to take photos like this too, and can be in Victoria 20-21 September, why not join us at the Steve Parish Nature Photography workshop? Bookings are still open but not for too much longer!
