    Hi Patrick -- BowerBird is in the process of closing down and most members are now using iNatualist as their citizen science platform. If you would like to know more and how to have your BowerBird records automatically transferred to iNaturalist then please send me an email at: kwalker@museum.vic.gov.au

    Thanks Leigh -- this could be the first ever image of Epsilon excavatus. It certainly has different colour markings than found on Epsilon chartergiforme. Many thanks for sharing.

    Hi Hermit -- BowerBird is in the process of closing down. We suggest you move your activities to iNaturalist where there is a BowerBird project and much identification assistance is available. Few people are now looking at BowerBird.
