Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike taken at my place Penrith NSW with Canon 80D
Photographer: Mick McKean
I've always found this common local species quite wary and hard to get close to. As a result, I have few good photos of them in over two years photographing birds. ast weekend I was staying on the Gold Coast, and took the opportunity to walk the beach dune area at sunrise each morning. This Black-faced Cuckooshrike perched not too far in from the dune in nice morning light, and didn't feel threatened by my presence.
