Mid-north Coast – New South Wales.

Back at Saltwater National Park, east of Taree on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. This place always has some great birds.

Green Catbird
Green Catbird (Ailuroedus crassirostris)

The range of the Green Catbird is New South Wales to Southern Queensland coastal regions up to Great Divide. They have a red eye with a strong whitish beck. I have been hearing them for a long time. They sound like a baby crying in the forest. And this is the first time I have actually seen one.
