Black-faced Monarch taken at Malanda by 

The Black-faced Monarch is a forest bird which lives in thick jungle style vegetation. They are difficult to photograph but I managed to get this one in a tree on the edge of the rain forest.

I specialise in Photographing birds in their natural environment. To date I have photographed over 450 Australian species. If you like to view great bird shots please visit my site. I also like to photograph Landscape scenes but this is my second choice. I love nature and love to see and capture it when it is living free.

    Wow Alwyn what a great shot. Where abouts in Malanda did you get the shot???

  • Hi Minniemanx, If yoy come into Malanda up the Gillies, turn right at the T intersection and go out about 2 kilometers and cross abridge and turn into a parkland where there is a nursery. I think it may be called Winfield Park but not sure. There are heaps of good birds there. Got this one, the Barred Cuckoo shrike, Golden Whistler, Pied Monarch, Boatbill, Shinging Bronze Cuckoo and Brown Gerygones all at that place. Didn,t want to leave. Best early morning. There are also tree Kangaroos there although we did not see any.

  • Also the Double eyed Fig Parrots are in the fig trees in Kuranda at the moment. We got them in the figtree in the park at the visitor center next to the kids play ground.

  • Sorry minniemanx but I gave you a bad direction. Should have been if you go up the Palmerston Hway and not the Gillies. Sorry about that.
