Bronze-cuckoo snacks in the sunshine



Little Bronze-Cuckoo (Chalcites minutillus; probably Gould's C.russatus again one day) one of many cuckoos enjoying Tyto caterpillars and sunshine today.



Happy with the sunshine, Bush Thick-knee (Stone-curlew; Burhinus grallarius) stand quietly and mostly unnoticed at Tyto carpark.

And - better late ... - Latham's Snipe (Gallinago hardwickii) circle above Tyto front lagoons after being flushed this morning. Species usually fronts on August 1.
