Just looking at an image of an Australasian Darter (male, breeding I guess)
photographed a couple of weeks ago in the Botanical Gardens in Cairns.
Photographed from behind with wings drying. Can any ornithologist tell me
what the two "ladder-like" feathers are next to its body? I cannot find the
answer anywhere.


Thanks in advance
