2011 09 07 PanoramaPt - ground orchidWe met 7am and headed out towards Panorama Point. Just passed Kinabalu Dr we parked our cars & started our bird walk. Not before long, a great discovery, two nesting Collared Sparrowhawks being annoyed by a female satin bower bird. We stayed a while to watch the Sparrowhawks leave the nest and return again, several times.

We ventured down a side track, where we stopped to hear a mimicking Albert’s Lyrebird, anddiscovered Yellow ground Diuris orchid - D.aurea
