In search of the Lyrebird. Focus being on observing Lyrebirds or evidence of their presence.  The Superb Lyrebird is thought to be one of the oldest links in the evolutionary development of songbirds on Earth, which means they have been scratching around our rainforests for a heck of a long time.  Unusually among songbirds, the Lyrebird nests through the Autumn and Winter months, which means that now is an ideal time for keen naturalists to go searching for them.
