CommentI was in an open wetland reserve photographing finches and noticed a channel-billed cuckoo being hounded in an aerial dogfight by an angry pack of ravens. When diving into some scrub chasing a honeyeater I noticed this huge bird staring at me, probably exhausted. Only a mother could love this one!! - the full size bird is amazing!
