Twelve-wired Bird of Paradise
The Twelve-wired Bird of Paradise, Seleucidis melanoleucus, is a medium-sized, approximately 33cm-long, velvet black and yellow bird of paradise. The male has a red iris, long black bill and rich yellow plumes along its flanks. From the rear of these plumes emerge twelve blackish, wire-like filaments, which bend back near their bases to sweep forward over the birds hindquarters. The female is a brown bird with black-barred buffy underparts. Its feet are strong, large-clawed and pink in color.
The sole representative of the monotypic genus Seleucidis, the Twelve-wired Bird of Paradise is a bird of lowland forests. The male displays on an exposed vertical perch with its breast-shield flared. Its diet consists mainly of fruits and arthropods.

Australian King Parrot
The Australian King Parrot (Alisterus scapularis) is endemic to eastern Australia. It is found in humid and heavily forested upland regions of the eastern portion of the continent, including eucalyptus wooded areas in and directly adjacent to subtropical and temperate rainforest. They feed on fruits, seeds or small insects.

Adults of both sexes are typically about 42 cm (16 in) in length, including the long tail.
The adult males (from about 4 years) are very striking in appearance with a red head, breast, and lower undersides, with a blue lower back, and green wings and tail. They have a reddish-orange upper beak with a black tip and a black lower beak, and yellow eye ring.
Females are similar in appearance to the males, except for a green head and breast, a black upper beak, and paler yellow eye ring.
Juveniles of both sexes resemble the females. Unpaired, younger males can been seen in medium sized groups.

Australian Logrunner (Orthonyx temminckii)
Springbrook National Park, Queensland, Australia. Male.

A couple of old photos of Australian Logrunners I unearthed while organising my old photos. The male has a white throat and breast whilst the female has an orange throat. Lovely little rainforest floor skulkers.
Please see my website for more photos.
