Australian Pipit

Had a lot of trouble getting an ID on this little fellow, but believe it is an Australian Pipit, formerly known as Richard's Pipet. I think the ID clincher was various comments that snappers had trouble keeping up with the Pipit walking away at speed as they tried to get a shot. Took these at Jacob's Well at the northern end of the Gold Coast ... mostly on the run.

Pretty sure that is what they are Murray, got some shots of the same a few weeks ago in Lennox Head. You certainly have to be quick as they don't stay still for long.



You are right with the Australian Pipit id - nice find.

I concur,

I cant really remember seeing this bird until about 6 months ago and now I always running into them. Though as Brian says not for too long

Dont take life too seriously, it never ends well
