Chestnut-breasted Manakin (Lonchura castancothorax) are found throughout coastal northern and eastern Australia. They are uncommon and seasonally nomadic, following the seeding grasses over large areas. Occasionally, when conditions are right they appear in regions where they haven稚 occurred for decades and I have occasionally seen local flocks of over 300. They seem to prefer being near freshwater wetlands, where they often build their nests in the surrounding reedbeds.

This one was taken in large Wollomai walkthrough aviary at Taronga Park Zoo.

Hi Chris,

A new specie to me. I like the big bill of the small bird and the colourful plumage.
Great shot.


Hi Chris,
is a new one for me too, a lovely bitd on colours and texture.
Well composed, good POV and details. In this case a more shallow DOF had been nice so the bird was more isolated fron the BG, but with a S2 thats not possible.
Beautiful work, my freind.

Very nice picture of this beautiful Manakin showing all the details and colours so clearly.
We saw a flock of them at Yorkies Knob in Queensland but they were hard to photograph, flitting around all the time.

Hi Chris,

This is a great shot the lighting is very nice, I like the POV profile on this manakin a lot. Your so lucky to live in an awesome country with some of the strangest but coolest animals. I am planning on coming over next year. :)

Hi Chris!
Great looking and exotic to me bird. I like contrast between bird's colours and dried grass. Good POV, details, light. I like it!
