CommentI was very happy when these birds turned up on the property about a week ago, we have seen as many as 9 flying around. They have proved to be a real challenge to photograph. The paddocks where they frequent are very open so no chance of sneaking up unannounced. This one stayed on the gate for a minute preening while the others fed on the ground. I think the look says it all. Taken out of the ute window, I am hoping for some closer shots but this will do for now.
