These guys were so common, but it was hard to get a photo of them because I was working in the field most of the time and couldn’t spend time taking photos

The less common white morph of the really quite beautiful paradise flycatcher…I know it’s a crappy photo but I chased this bird into a thorny bush at dusk to get it, so I’m sharing gosh darn it!
