The Secretive Eastern Whipbird revealed.

A pair of (Australian) Eastern Whipbirds (Psophodes olivaceus) were active in front of our house this morning but one got too inquisitive & ended up being entrapped under a light flower pot in a tight place. The dogs were barking at all the rattling going on, so I went with camera in hand to investigate & got these photos after releasing it. This is a great chance of photos as they usually flit around amidst the bushes most of the time & are hard to see let alone actually getting a photograph of them.

After flying off after their mate this one landed on this log further away & hence a cropped photo.
