CommentHand feeding a Regent Bowerbird and captured a meal worm about to go down the hatch. These aviaries are very large and still require the usual birding skills to catch the birds at just the right moment. These guys fly in and grab the worm then quickly fly away to consume their catch. Unfortunately the Park closes tomorrow permanently due to ongoing stress of bush fires.
