The other item of interest at Cambewarra was the sight of 55 Satin Bowerbirds, only two or three of them black, flying from an isolated copse of rainforest (disturbed by my passing), into another line of trees.


Separately at nearly the same time I took a photo of 23 Pied Currawongs sitting artistically arranged in some trees all facing the same way in the wind and only noticed just now (looking at the photo) that  there were also six Bowerbirds sitting in those trees.  These were in a different place from the 55, so making 61 Satin Bowerbirds at least.
