Hello Chris, my today's neighborou :)
Very nice capture of this cute bird species. I like a lot shape of body in this species and the way in which you presented it. It is nice to know that so interesting and original birds can be seen during picnic time ;>

Thats an odd looking bird Chris.
I wouldn't have picked it as a Curlew.
Most have big downcurved beaks don't they?
Then I guess most things out of Oz are pretty odd ;)
Great shot mate!

Very nice picture of this "tall" an slender bird. Moreover I think your POV and your tight crop emphasize its shape. Very good composition. Good natural colours.

You have made a fine photo of this bird. You had good eye contact with the bird despite backward POV. Image is sharp showing fine details of the plumage. Color rendering is well don showing natural looking color tones.
Thank you for sharing,

strange bird. i think that Romania have a similar species called "Pasarea Ogorului" in romanian, but I think now is extinct or very rare.

a real beauty, this bird emanating such "dignity" and even "mourning". All is topped by the excellent composition of the image, the dead leaves are all upturned, they create some kind of a movement to the left. Of course I've never seen a Bush stone curlew before. In Europe we have the similar but much smaller Burhinus oedicnemus in the Mediterranean region.
