Duncan and I had a chance to check out the Crinigan Rd Reserve in Morwell today. In particular we were hopeful of some orchids but except for the odd greenhood and helmet, we lucked out. In the process we came across an Eastern Whipbird that checked us out a few times. I've always found this species to be particularly well hidden and shy. I've often heard of stories told of birds that regularly show themselves at this picnic ground or that but it has never happened to me, until today.
If you are a non-Aussie reader you may be interested to hear the stunning call that gives this bird it's name. There are heaps of on-line links to this call, try this one.
