Our day commences in the near O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat as we capture images of many small rainforest dwellers such as Regent Bower Birds, Eastern Yellow Robins, Eastern Whipbirds, Lewins Honeyeaters, Satin Bowerbirds and more.
You'll learn to identify and adapt to the behaviour of different species and anticipate their movements. Knowing what they are up to will boost the opportunities to capture amazing images.
After morning tea we'll track down an active bower and stalk the Satin Bower Bird as they maintain and decorate the bower. With patience we may see him entice a female for courtship to the bower.
After lunch, we will utilise the marvellous 'Birds of Prey' flight show presented by Mark 'The Birdman' Culleton. You will be fully briefed on the correct settings and techniques to capture the birds in flight as they pass overhead. An amazing show and an equally amazing opportunity to learn how to photograph birds in flight.
Out in the field again for the last session where we show how to attract and photograph species on the edge of the forest.
