Hi All
quite an interesting observation this morning at Howard Springs 
near Darwin. A Rainbow Pitta displaying by standing erect and 
then bowing so low its chin almost touched the ground, all the 
while retaining the stiff, extended posture. Looked totally different 
from the typical Pitta shape one gets used to. Nearby a Tawny 
Frogmouth with a couple of chicks, Shining Flycatcher, Spangled 
Drongo, Lemon-bellied Flycatcher and Large-billed Gerygone all 
nesting. Followed up with Little Kingfisher, Mangrove- Robin, 
Gerygone, Fantail at nearby Palmerston.
***Also, I strongly urge support for Russell Woodford's plea that 
ONLY birding topics be posted to this forum.

Have a nice day
