Bush curlew, still as a stone
This week’s reader photo was taken by Mark in Cairns, QLD.
The bush stone-curlew (Burhinus grallarius) is a ground-dwelling bird endemic to Australia, and are more often heard than seen – their piercing call when threatened resembles a scream similar to that of a possum.
