  1. Beautiful post, my friend! This is a fascinating bird…one that we do not have. You have brought them to me on several occasions, which I very much enjoy! Thank you and have a beautiful Sunday and week ahead!

    • Thanks Donna, so delighted you enjoyed the Lyrebird showcase, I always enjoy hearing and sighting this bird when I walk in the NP. Yes the Monitor is a very large reptile almost dinosaur like creature, thankfully we do not see them very often, but they have been known to raid picnic baskets and campers food. Have a wonderful week.

    • Thank you Anonymous, these birds do not allow you to get close, but you can get 20 feet away if they are foraging and do not notice you and you remain still. They will head into the bush if they feel you are too close.

    • Thanks so much Robyn! I have been only a few feet away without him realising, but most times they will head into the bush if I get closer than twenty feet. If I sneak up on them foraging I can sometimes get much closer. You are welcome to come out with my wife and I one weekend and we will seek to show you one or two, though they will be courting and nesting in the next month or so, but we should see occasional males. Enjoy your week dear friend!

  2. The Lyrebirds are not only beautiful but have an incredible skill to copy any sounds, as difficult as they can be. A few years ago I saw a video in Youtube by the BBC Studios w/ David Attenborough and show this incredible imitating all kinds of machinery sounds, it was fantastic! Great post Ashley. 🙂

    • Thanks HJ, yes they are are incredible, and people use to use the term ‘bird brain’ for what they thought a stupid creature, but all research and observation prove the very oposite. These birds are very skilled and highly intelligent.
