They are everywhere in Magnetic Island... and they are very Noisy... :)
Hi JorgeArmandoRuedaEstupiñan.. Burhinus capensis is an African Stone Curlew. We only have 2 Stone Curlew in Australia..
Nice shot! They actually draw a threat away from their nests by distracting the threat with loud calls and moving away from their nests. They are common on fields. look out for their eggs, well camouflaged, looks a bit like their plumage and they nest on the ground usually.
