Superb Lyrebird

Menura novaehollandiae

 

This Lyrebird was seen right near one of the walking trails at Fitzroy Falls. It did not seem frightened of people, as I managed to take this shot from a few metres away. It was foraging for food.

 

If you haven't heard the amazing vocal abilities of this species, check out this video:
