A few of these Nankeen Night Herons around today, I spotted this one catching and eating a Motorbike Frog.

G'day mike

Most impressed with sharpness and fine detail - you have done well
Q- how does the frog get its name?

Thanks Phil,
There's a recording on the WA Museum page

When surrounded by thousands of these in the wetlands all calling at the same time it really does sound like a motorbike rally.
