I love these strange birds, i have not seen many although i realise they are quite common.

They are remarkable looking birds - great to get them right in the center of sydney at centennial park. Nice shots.

I had one visiting my garden quite regularly at night about a year ago - sometimes would perch on power lines or neighbours tree, and make a low boom-boom call.

Great shots Ann

I always wonder when im hiking , how many of these hide in plain sight champs Ive actually pass by.

Dont take life too seriously, it never ends well

It took a long time for me to see these ones until they moved, their impression of a tree branch was very good!

It is remarkable how long they can stay in the one position.

Well done, Elizabeth. They can be hard to spot even when you know they are there.
