You guys "down under" have some of the coolest birds... Great picture! I don't know if I can control myself much longer under this self-imposed waiting period till I buy my camera in March or April... these pictures... they really impress and get me looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Thanks for the nice photo.

Love the picture, very nicely done. Once again you've done a good job of showing off your unusual birds.

Rodney, beautiful bird and fine skill with the camera.

I can't believe where the time has gone but I will be leaving for your fine country in 1 1/2 months. The nearest I will be to where you are is Port Douglas. I am looking forward to seeing your birds, animals and fauna.

I agree with all the prevoius posts -- great shot of a very interesting bird. But I must confess my ignorance -- I have no idea what the bird is. What is it called, and how common is it?
