This beautiful male Regent Bowerbird (sericulus chrysocephalus) was photographed near O’Reilly’s Guesthouse in the rainforest in Lamington National Park in Southern Queensland. The photo was taken beside a small clearing where the birds flitted in and out and it took quite a long period sitting quietly and still to get one perched long enough in a sunny spot.

    Never had a shot at these/ Well done, lucky you!

  • There is a time of the year they become easy to see near the Oreilly’s Guesthouse in Lamington National Park but like all birds, it takes time to get the right one. Thank you for the comment..
