Rufous Songlark stands firm

Rufous Songlark (Cincloramphus mathewsi) stands firm in face of stiff easterly at Mungalla Station today.

Not always easy to find in the browning grasses, the bird has stuck to the old stockyards area for several months.

Another longterm stayer has been this Australian Bustard (Ardeotis australis), often seen previously with three others but lately walking alone.

Also alone at the station, handsome eucalypt (motionless during a recent still morning: there is a bird on show, by accident).

Last straw too much for Double-barred Finch

Townsville Common Cons. Pk, track to Jacana hide, today. Flew off a second later with lighter load.
