It has been a very long time coming, but I finally managed a decent shot of a male Eastern Whipbird.
Whipbirds are incredibly secretive little fellows who are rarely seen in the open. They are known for their whip-like call, usually followed by two small "echoes" from a nearby member of the flock and I presume the distinctive call is a way of keeping track of the flock in dense undergrowth.
This was taken along the boardwalk leading to the Treetop walk at O'Reilly's in Lamington National Park.
Lea had gone ahead with the children and spotted him sitting there and luckily it was still there when I managed to catch up.
