  1. Hi Geoff,
    How can you pick a female Diamond Firetail?

    • Hi Dave – the narrow neck band … I’ll try and do a comparative study at some stage.
      Cheers, geoff

  2. Libby Woodward has been taking camera trap pics of Diamond Firetails as small artificial ponds dotted about her Violet Town property. And it looks like the individuals may be recognised by their unique spot patterns. Intriguing!
