Bush stone curlew family. 🇦🇺

in Feathered Friends • 8 months ago

When we headed into our hotel room on Magnetic Island, I opened our screen door then heard some rustling in the bushes.
At quick glance I saw a curlew standing there making this vvvvvvvv sound at me.

We put our bags into the room and I grabbed my camera. Now Bush Stone curlews are pretty common in Queensland.

They are a ground dwelling bird which hunt at night. During the day you normally find them chilling out under bushes like this one.

On a closer look I realised it was two parents and their baby.

Bush Stone curlews have huge yellow eyes.

At night they make a very distinctive blood curdling scream. Haha I'm not kidding its super creepy.

How can you tell if your smartphone is good at playing music?
By the number of gigs it has.
