I used to live in Kincumber not far from Gosford, in a small patch of forest. 
We regularly observed Regent Bowerbirds on our property during our 12 years 
residence there. In fact this marvellous bird regular came to our feeder 
especially in response to grated cheese. I recall on one occasion counting 12 
males at one sitting!

Best wishes
