This one of a pair of beautiful, endangered and ground-dwelling birds that seem to have adopted us at my place of work. They stand like sentinels near the door but scurry for cover if anyone gets too close.Canon 50D, EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Great close up..!
Many thanks .. I’m the only one that can get close because I talk to them and make noises … my workmates can’t work it out as they just run away from them. Lol!
Bush Stone Curlew
Yep I know … it’s in my tags!
very nicely done…
Many thanks, very happy making!
“What type of bird are they Bryon?” Brillant close-up considering how timid they are. Love his eye and the colour:=}
Many thanks. They’re a Bush Stone-curlew, endangered in many areas now due to destruction of habitat!
