Paradise Riflebird

I was disappointed to have a cold, rainy holiday at the Bunya Mountains National Park in August 2007. One of the highlights however, was during an early morning walk in the misty rain when I encountered this character mumbling to himself, seemingly frustrated by the contents of a rotting branch. He totally ignored me while he stratched and listened for what was probably some kind of large beetle hiding inside the branch.
