Satin Bowerbird (female or immature)

I saw this bird hunting on the forest floor and grabbing this huge beetle which it bashed and mashed before swallowing.

Again, much better profile shots were spoiled by that oof stick which I didn't even see in the gloom but sure spotted at home on the pc where it obscures the bird's face when it is lifted to the side.

One for the record.
