CommentLate afternoon on the outskirts of Port Macquarie along a gravel track bisecting paddocks and a swamp habitat. Taken while prone under camo with gear mounted on skimmer pod. It came so close that eventually I was unable to focus, and had no time to remove the extender. A lesson for next time! The eye colour leads me to beliveve this is an immature bird. Unfortunately none of my plethora of guides mention any other eye colour except red.
