October 24, 2019 – Sandstone Shrike-thrush (Colluricincla woodwardi)

These shrike-thrushes are found in shrubland and rocky areas in parts of northern Australia. They eat insects and spiders, along with some small vertebrates, foraging on the ground alone or in pairs. Nesting in crevices or under overhangs on rock ledges, they build cup-shaped nests from spinifex, twigs, bark, rootlets, and other materials.
