Superb Lyrebird…in Queensland!

Finally managed to see the northern race of Superb Lyrebird in Queensland (ssp edwardi) This male was approaching Bald Rock Creek at Girraween National Park for a drink at dusk when we noticed him fly up to a tree. The footage is short and very poor (taken with a handycam) but shows clearly what a magnificent species this is.

    Hi Tom, I had the pleasure of stalking one of these in Giraween around 10 years ago. I managed to get within a few metres of it before it suddenly saw me and ran.
