Wed 18Australian Bustard (Ardeotis Australis)
Between Yongla & Mananarie (Peterborough Road)
While travelling west along Peterborough Road, heading west towards Mananarie, I passed a bird I had never seen before in the Mid North, so turned the car around and stopped to observe it and take photos. The bird was in high grass inside a paddock, and soon went to ground, where I could not see it. I left the car and the bird went for a walk, so I got quite a few nice photos of it. It turns out it was an Australian Bustard, Ardeotis australis. I have never ever seen one of these birds for me, so as you can imagine I was so over the hill.
