Excellent Lindell.  100 points will be credited to your running trivia account.  According to the RBA website ‘Tilt the banknote to see the Eastern Spinebill move its wings and change colour’. 


Now here’s something different.  What is it? (photographed this morning)

Which local ACT bird species is on the $5 note?


Scoring:  100 points if you know; 10 points if you need to look at the note; 1 point if you need to consult the RBA website.  Hint – if you tilt it, it flutters its wings.
