CommentWell not the best photo technically, According to my Simpson & Day, the random black feathers this is a 4-7 yr old immature male Satin Bowerbird. I hadn't seen this before and don't think many others would have. Different to the majority of full coloured males shown in the gallery and I thought worth posting for educational purposes.
EquipmentNikon D7200, Nikkor 150-500 lens. 1/2000s @ F7.1. 500mm (750 35mm equiv)
LocationSpringbrook, Repeater Station Rd, Queensland
