New arrival from Moonlit Sanctuary

This gorgeous female Satin Bowerbird has found a new home at On The Perch. She came to us from Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park and will hopefully pair up with our male Satin Bowerbird, Midnight. Next time you visit, keep your eyes out in the Temperate Australia walk-in aviary for both of them. Photo by recent visitor Andrew Argent 📷#sapphirecoast #canberrascoast
