CommentWhile there used to be a lot Apostlebirds in this area, they have been hard to find the last few times I have visited the site.
I was just about to leave for the airport and this bird came out of nowhere and starting feeding in between the rough bark of a tree right on the edge of Yeppen Lagoon.I like this photo because of the clear detail of the bird's feathers and the bird stands out against the bright light in the background. Sadly he was alone and in previous years this area has been reliable to find 10 to 15 of the birds together.
