  1. Ah! Many thanks for the observation. The ‘bird finder’ on the site Birds in Backyards shows the psophodes olivaceus (see http://www.birdsinbackyards.net/species/Psophodes-olivaceus). And, there’s also a sound file of the characteristic call. Their habitat it described as “wet habitats, including rainforest, eucalypt forest and dense scrub near watercourses, in dense vegetation near the ground” and that would explain where it was photographed.
