Private farmland Buckleboo
Bird landed on front of header while my son in law was harvesting. ID was confirmed through Australian Bird Identification Facebook query by me as I was astounded at my ID process. Son in law was concerned for birds welfare and stopped machine after photographing it before climbing down to safely remove bird. It went before he got down. He does not wish to be named as observer - he sent photos to me to have bird ID.
