Fantastic images! I've just been trawling Bowerbird and discovered what looks an excellent match for yours. The Bowerbird record is identified by Tom Weir (CSIRO), so I suggest we could take this one to the species level. See what you think ... http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/7287

Hi Kerri, Certainly looks like a close match to us. So Tenagogerris euphrosyne then hey? Leave it to you to confirm it.

Will do. And I've just noticed that the Australian Museum has identified this species from collections made in 1996 & 1997 at almost the exact same location - between Bemboka and Morans Crossing! More evidence that this is likely to be a correct ID. Again, great photos folks!

Excellent. It's an interesting spot, Bemboka River reserve. If you can ever tear yourselves away from Wonboyn I'd recommend a visit.
