Usually solitary, but sometimes the Crested Bellbird is seen in twos, small family groups or loose parties. It is usually quiet and unobtrusive, except when uttering its highly distinctive and ventriloquial ringing song; Crested Bellbirds are heard far more often than they are seen, especially as the ventriloquial quality of their song can make it frustratingly difficult to pinpoint the location of the singer. Though mainly terrestrial, Bellbirds often sing from trees or low shrubs. More

Female Crested Bellbirds keep an even lower profile - virtually plain grey birds (they can easily be mistaken for a Grey Shrike-thrush) they only occasionally join in song with a male. They seem to be quite shy and are not seen very often, certainly not by me.

The long shaft of the spear would drag the ground and create a long line beside the tracks of the emu that was hit. More
