  1. Fabulous post! I loved all the videos and sounds! Yes, it’s so true that you can hear a lot of birds in rainforest but seeing them and photographing them can be very difficult. I’ve still not managed to get a shot of an eastern whipbird despite hearing them on many of my walks. I catch glimpses of them though. I photographed a thornbill recently at Ravensbourne National Park and was wondering if it was a brown thornbill. Looking at your pics, I’m fairly sure it is now. I’m looking forward to sharing the Ravensbourn National Park post with you. The eastern yellow robins were everywhere and they are such curious birds. Thanks for this wonderful walk. It seems like you had a wonderful time enjoying birds you don’t see that often. 🙂

    • Thanks Jane for your appreciative comments. As a kindred rainforest birder and walker, you understand the difficulty of photographing in Australian forests. Yes it is is difficult for many in discerning the Thornbill species as they look so similar, that is why I added the little help. Yes the Eastern Yellows are always a faithful find in any walk, usually found in the same area. Have a wonderful week, keeping you and your family in prayer:-)

  2. You did very well in finding and photographing so many difficult to find/see birds! I know from experience that getting even a half shot of the small birds in a thick forest is challenging. I thought the Rainbow Lorikeet was beautiful, and so was the Yellow Robin. The Whipbirds call was amazing! Thank you for the beautiful walk in rainforest, feeling happy and relaxed already 🙂

    • Thanks Tiny, I am delighted you could come with us on the rainforest walk, and enjoy our birds along the way. We do have some unique and interesting bird calls of which the Eastern Whipbird is most profound. I always get excited when I hear them in the forest, and try to sneak a peek, but they can be very elusive, as they tend to move along the ground under thick bush. Occasionally, if they do not know where their female is, they will jump up onto onto the top of a low bush and make their call. Thank you again my friend for your welcome comments, have a wonderful weekend:-)

  3. Loved the rain forest landscape captures, especially the palm forest, thank you for sharing them! I could indeed imagine myself destressing naturally in a rain forest. And boy, I just love those Rainbow Lorikeets!

    • Thanks again Donna, yes the Rainbows are probably one of our most heard and seen birds at the moment, eating the spring flowers. They are extremely active and fast flying, always making their calls. They are beautiful in the sunlight.

  4. Lovely photos and that treecreeper bird is quite interesting. I totally agree with you Ashley about a walk in a forest helping to calm, centre, and rejuvenate the soul. We should all do more walking amongst Nature. 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, we can all benefit from a walk in a forest, even if it is not a rainforest,it is medicinal. I have to say I do get excited when I hear the tree creeper, and recently it has been more often than usual, as they move into breeding season.
