CommentOne of a kind in the ACT right now that we know of. Very highly sort after by local birders. With many visits and much patience I finally captured it and this one while looking directly at me which allows us to see the shape of its head and the Blue-bill well defined. Rated vulnerable in NSW. It is very shy and stays quite a distance from our hides so its cropped quite a bit. Blue bill indicates breeding Male but we have not sighted a female yet.
