1. The Pilotbird is an elusive inhabitant of the undergrowth of wet forests of far southeastern Australia (SE NSW and eastern Victoria).This particular individual had the decency of hopping out onto a forest road for us all to see! Popular legend has it that these birds follow Lyrebirds around while foraging - not sure of this myself. Also on birdsofaustralia.video

  3. The Yellow-throated Scrubwren is an inhabitant of the gloomy dense undergrowth of rainforests on the east coast of Australia from SE Queensland to the Illawarra region to the south of Sydney NSW. A separate population is found in the wet tropics of north Queensland. While not uncommon in its habitat, is is a difficult bird to get a clear view of. This short clip was filmed in Nowra, NSW, close the the southern limit of its range. Can be found with the similar and closely related White-browed Scrubwren: vimeo.com/114214321

  4. The call of the Grey warbler / Riroriro is one of the most characteristic sounds of native bush in New Zealand. It is an easy to hear, but this hyperactive little bird often difficult to see. One of two Gerygones endemic to New Zealand, it is common in forest and scrub and often found in established gardens. It has a number of close relatives in Australia, for example vimeo.com/110632334

  5. The White-throated Gerygone is a small hyperactive little insectivore found in northern, eastern and southeastern Australia. In the southern part of its range it is migratory. Its distinctive calls (heard here) carry well in woodland, the bird itself can be relatively hard to see. Common in woodland in the Canberra region during the warmer months of the year. Towards the inland edge of its range can be found with Western Gerygone see: vimeo.com/182189355
