Inflated clutch size in the Superb Lyrebird Menura novaehollandiae

Members of the Sherbrooke Lyrebird Survey Group have recorded single-egg clutches as being the norm for the Superb Lyrebird Menura novaehollandiae in Sherbrooke Forest, but occasionally there are two eggs present in a single nest. Here, we report the first record of a three-egg clutch for the Superb Lyrebird. On 20 August 2016, we discovered a lyrebird nest containing three eggs, located approximately 20 m northwest of a tributary to Sherbrooke Creek, south of Wattle Track.
