On Friday 11th July I was sitting at the Glades picnic area observing a Grey Shrike Thrush at close quarters. It was stabbing the stump end of a small branch with deliberate intent. It would peer at the stump, aim and thrust a heaving stab, wait a little and repeat. It did this several times before hopping over the stump and repeating from the other side.
I do not know the result. At that stage my wife called me over. She had found the male Paradise Riflebird feeding at the top of a nearby fruiting tree and it was in full view in full sunshine. I could not resist! The Grey Shrike Thrush had left by the time I had feasted my eyes on both male and female obliging Riflebirds.
