Australian Bird


Recommended Posts

My friend sent me pictures of this bird.  It was photographed at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney sometime in March (I don't have an exact date).  I don't believe it was in one of the exhibits.  I tried the Merlin Bird ID app, but couldn't find a match.  Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like a Gray-crowned Babbler. If I had to guess, this is probably part of an exhibit. If it is a wild bird, then it seems like it would be somewhat rare for Sydney based on what the range maps I'm looking at are telling me.

Agreed.

And look at those leg bands. Do they band wild birds like that?
