Streaked Wren-babbler

posted in: birds, Miscellaneous | 0

I spotted a pair of Streaked Wren-babblers (Napothera brevicaudata leucosticte) moving and calling in the undergrowth and chose to wait for them to emerge fully.

They came out a number of times to call (see below) as well as to display some wing flick behaviour.

I suspect the behaviour was addressed towards me, either as intimidation or distraction. They gave spectacular views while doing so, in decent lighting.
