Recently, when walking through one of the local sub-tropical rainforests, I went looking for an Albert’s lyrebird, which is endemic to a small area on the state border between New South Wales and Queensland. The rarer of the two species of lyrebirds, Albert’s lyrebird is named after Prince Albert. It lacks the elegant lyre-shaped tail feathers of the superb lyrebird but is found in a much more restricted range. It has one of the smallest distributional ranges of any bird on our continent.
Unfortunately, I did not spot one, but I have painted my interpretation of the bird in my painting. I hope you can feel the majesty of the forest and feel the cool spray of the cascade on your face.
