765 Diamond Firetail - Photography by Christine Goonrey

The diamonds are worn down the black sides for best effect but it is the dazzling red flash on the rump that you are most likely to see first as it flies away. The characteristic mournful whistle may alert you to their presence on the ground ahead, their feeding habitat. This is an endangered species.
