I think this is the Australasian Figbird, male and female. But as Aus birds are totally new to me I will probably make mistakes. I trust you will tell me when it happens. I want to get it right as I post the species I photographed. :)

  10. They surely are different... male from female... don't actually seem the same bird at all do they? We have nothing like those here ....

  11. As soon as I saw the first photo I had a flash back to a wonderful book given to me as a little girl when I first arrived in Australia by kind neighbours wanting to show me the beauty of Australiana nature. Naturally at that age it wasn't really appreciated and tis only now that I ache to have it and cannot even remember its name. It must have cost a lot as it had coloured photographs and had exquisite drawings as well...like a precious museum book.
    Thank you for your beautiful photos.
