A friend told me the best way to see Albert's Lyrebirds is to don the
runners and jog or run (depending on how spry you're feeling)  along
walking tracks through its known habitat.  The theory is that, if you
startle them from the vicinity of the track they tend to alight on a
branch nearby, whereas if you only walk they have plenty of time to hear
you and skulk away.

I've not had the opportunity to put it to the test.   Perhaps some of
you might be able to try and let us all know whether your strike rate

Are there other proven methods that people would like to share, not just
for Alberts but for other spirit-breakers such as grasswrens,
bristlebirds and bitterns?
