Default Foraging

Because of the rain we were later getting out to the gorge for our weekly lyrebird watch last Saturday. The morning recital was over, but we found a young male foraging through the scrub for his mid-morning snacks. The trouble with foraging is that you end up with a lot of headless pics behind tussocks of grass and logs, so you wait for them to take a look about. Pics #1, #2 and #3 taken by Mark, #4 and #5 by me.

Still no sign of any hens, but I believe we would be v e e e e e ry lucky to catch sight of them let alone be able to photograph one.
