VICTORIA'S RIFLEBIRD
The male Victoria’s Riflebird is black with iridescent blue/green markings on his head, chest and tail.  When he flies, you can hear a sound of rustling paper.  The female and juveniles are brown.   When calling to the female, the male makes a harsh, grating call, and opens his beak wide, showing the bright yellow colour inside. Lake Barrine - Far - North Queensland, Australia.
