And I saw a pair scratching in the Dirt at Fitzroy Falls about 4 years ago -- just 2-3 metres from the busy footpath.

Just stood there and watched them while otehrs walked past in broad daylight.

Hi Peter,

Lucky you! I can't comment on your question regarding the Alberts
specifically, but I am currently doing some work on Superb Lyrebirds
in the Blue Mountains, where we also have populations of tame birds
in places they have a lot of contact with people, e.g. at Scenic
World. I can say with confidence that these birds are not fed but
they are habituated to tourists to the extent that they can be
observed as closely as 2-4 metres without taking any notice of the
observer. (It makes them truly amazing study subjects!)
