A male Victoria’s Riflebird calls out nearly every afternoon from the top of a tall tree at the cottages. Yesterday I went armed with my camera and recorded a lovely display in silhouette against the late afternoon sky. The hapless Romeo posed and danced for the female for over 10 minutes, but did not impress. Notice that they had an audience towards the end of the video.
