CommentReported to be very tame in certain environments. That was the case here as I waited lying on a track waiting in hope for it to emerge from nearby undergrowth. It did so quite unperturbed by my presence. I was pleased to capture my first clear image of this bird showing the distinctive ginger chest band and intricately patterned plumage.
