Bush Stone-Curlew: Burhnius grallarius
The bush stone-curlew is a medium sized bird that walks upon two long legs. It has a grey-brown colouring to camouflage with its environment. The bird can be found in Australia, Papua New Guinea and some Indonesian Islands.
The bush stone-curlew is an omnivore, eating a variety of seeds and small animals such as insects and molluscs. The birds are mostly nocturnal, although they are occasionally seen during the day as well.
The bush stone-curlew is not considered to be threatened. Although, habitat destruction and predation by introduced predators, such as the red fox, may be negatively impacting some populations.
