Albert s Lyrebird - Male in courtship display

Alberts Lyrebird - Male in courtship display
Montane rainforest at The Head, near Wilsons Peak, Queensland/New South Wales border, Australia
Menura alberti
Male Alberts lyrebirds display all winter (breeding season) on rudimentary display mounds consisting of a few trampled sticks or low vines on the montane rainforest floor. Several alternate sites are used but there is usually a favourite used first thing in the morning. The bird stamps, quivers its tail & sings (it is a passerine), with very rich loud song & mimicry of other bird species plus other sounds. This attracts females for mating & declares the territory. Unlike the Superb lyrebird of more southern forests, which has down-curved tail
feathers that lie flat across the birds back when raised, the alberts tail feathers are unswept. When they are raised forward over the birds body in display, the down-curving forms this curious lacy shroud, inside which the bird sings and dances
