The Green Catbird 17.11.1980
The green catbird (Ailuroedus crassirostris) is a species of bowerbird found in subtropical forests along the east coast of Australia, from southeastern Queensland to southern New South Wales. It is named for its distinctive call which sounds like a cat meowing, although it has also been mistaken for a crying child. The green catbird is extremely similar to the spotted catbird, which is only found in an isolated population in Far North Queensland. They are considered the same species by some commentators.
