Bush Stone-Curlew

Daintree Rainforest, Queensland, AU
These , and other, bush birds have been heavily predated by introduced red fox (different than our red fox) and are extremely wary. Fairly large crop from a small rise. Chose this angle to get a look at his half-webbed feet…
Tall birds, about 32 inches high

Nice habitat shot with good detail in the bird.

Nice one, Sandy. If I recall correctly, these had a really cool call as well. I love the clarity in the eye.

Yes, the call is very weird - and a little creepy, in the middle of the night.
