Picathartes nest

One of the target birds for the trip into the Korup forest was the fabled Grey-necked Picathartes. We were lucky enough to see two of them though disappointingly i failed to get any photograph.
This is a Picathartes nest - like a huge swallow's nest made of mud which the bird attaches to cave walls or to overhanging boulders or cliffs.
