CommentABG describes this species as 'secretive... shy and furtive', behaviour traits shared with the two other bristlebird species of Australia. Usually heard when present but rarely seen well if at all. This image shows a bird of the nominate race brachypterus (short-winged). We followed it for some time along the edge of a track until there was a place where the vegetation had been pushed back forming a low pile. We anticipated that the bird would come into the open to cross the pile, but did not expect it to pause for a moment for a photo-opportunity I have removed a couple of out of focus twigs from the bottom of the picture.
EquipmentCanon 5Ds +600 mm f/4 III, hand-held. Manual, spot metering, AI Servo spot AF, f/4, 1/1600 sec, ISO 400. Processed using DPP4 and PSE14 with Neat Image plug-in.
LocationBooderee NP, Jervis Bay (ACT)
