Mon 10 Dec Satin Bowerbird Kellys Swamp & Jerrabomberra Wetlands, Fyshwick
Satin Bowerbird (1) Female - first seen in stand of young Wattle Trees near Fulica hide. It was partly concealed at first before emerging to perch in a nearby Eucalypt allowing for some dimly lit photos. [Moderator's comment: this is the first record reported to Eremaea of this species at this site.]
