Lyrebirds spotted on the track to the Irrawong waterfall

Lyrebirds spotted on the track to the Irrawong waterfall

This is one of two lyrebirds spotted on the track to the Irrawong waterfall recently by Kevin and Glenys Murray.

“They seemed oblivious to our presence scratching the leaf litter right beside the boardwalk’, said Kevin. PEF called in the Pittwater Natural Heritage Association experts for further information.

Birder Graeme Stevens thinks they are probably a mother and a juvenile given the lack of a splendid tail. The pair were also seen by Monique Kaha on her way to the Irrawong Bushcare afternoon last Saturday.

This is an exciting development, said PEF Director Marita Macrae, as we are just ending the second year of our six year bush regeneration plan for this area.
