great shots thank you. One bird mid size on ground - I don’t recognise species. nightjar?
Very peaceful place - enjoy!
Thank you @snowgum . That’s a female Satin Bowerbird
They’re completely different plumage to the males, which have a superb electric blue sheen. Both have electric blue eyes, and the males purloin blue items to decorate their bower nests, and entice the females.
We’ve found their bowers littered with blue pen caps, bottle caps and other blue bits and pieces. We’ve been entertained watching the male trying to pilfer blue items from around our place that are far too big and heavy, such as our chainsaw carrier, or a section of blue on a large crate.
The pair of juveniles below waiting for dad to feed them are similar to the females, but are darker brown and more darkly speckled.
You can see on the last picture, an older juvenile male is starting to grow it’s blue-black adult plumage, which they only begin to do when they’re around 6 or 7 years old and beginning to reach maturity.
