A common Australian terrestrial bird that spends most of its time on the ground for foraging and breeding. Prefers semi to open habitats. I often see them on rural tracks running the wheel ruts.

This can be a challenging, but gorgeous walk anytime. However, when in flood it is an amazing place for chuting with daggers as well.
I met these guys at Polly’s one year as they were preparing to take on the large number of falls and cascades in these highly manoeuvrable kayaks. They watch BOM for a certain flood level as a trigger point to take on the raging water. They emphasised this was only something to do when the water level was right. Otherwise, the risk of disaster was manyfold higher.
I hadn’t seen the video until Sim posted it on bogietree enjoy: shooting the flooded Sevens
