Mitchell River National Park, WA (Aug, 2008)

This was one of the Black Grasswrens seen at a distance on our first morning at Mitchell Falls National Park. Two days later after a pre-dawn walk in the dark to a pre-selected hiding spot, we were rewarded with views of Black Grasswrens coming to within two metres of us but unfortunately I was unable to photograph them.
