Victoria's Riflebird

Victoria's Riflebird mating display

From your unit you can see Victoria's Riflebirds feeding on insects under the bark on the sides of the rainforest trees. In the spring you can hear the rasping mating calls of the riflebirds coming out of the rainforest. If the rasping sound is continuous, walk towards it and look for the mating riflebirds about 5 metres above the forest floor on a broken off tree or horizontal branch.
The Victoria's riflebird mating display is one of the most precious bird watching sightings of the rainforest.

Lesser Sooty Owl

Birds of the Night

On most nights you can hear the calls of the Lesser Sooty Owl and Boobook Owl . Explore in search of the elusive Rufous Owl and Papuan Frog Mouth. Owls may also be seen hunting various nocturnal animals around the property.

While on full mooon nights you can enjoy the magnificent atmosphere created by the mating calls of the normally shy Orange-footed Scrubfowl.

Tooth-billed Bowerbird

Tooth-billed bowerbird mating display

For approximately 3 months of the year between September and January, Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodges plays host to 7 mating male Tooth-billed Bowerbirds who clear a 3 metre circular stage on the rainforest floor and attempt by careful leaf arrangements and mimicry of all sounds of the rainforest to court the females. Depending on his skill an individual male Tooth-billed Bowerbirds may mate with all of the females or none of them but regardless of this he will still maintain his stage for the whole of the season.
