CommentThis image demonstrates a combination of three useful diagnostic characteristics: red eye, large bill, and the interrupted 'eye ring'. The location has a (potentially) useful bird hide but the wetland was almost completely dry when we were there because of what locals reported as three successive wet season failures. There were no waterbirds at all. This bird fed actively in the foliage of paperbarks.
