I haven't got a photo as yet, I will try for one later on. I picked up an orphaned baby bird, I'll describe it and maybe someone may be able to help me?
It has light blue eyes...(i thought it was a Satin Bowerbird until I saw it) the beak is similar to a satin Bowerbird, it's the same size as has black feathers with brown feathers coming through on the wings the under belly is a light beige/whitish colour. I thought maybe a "treecreeper", but I have changed my mind. It is a fuit/insect eater by the beak.
It was found at South Durras on the coast with no parents around. Has anyone got any suggestions?
