We see flashing glimpses of these birds (at least I think they're the same) in the undergrowth and among the trees here, but it's so great to finally see their photos! :-)

Wow. I see relatives of these all the time but I never manage to get a photograph of them as they fly across tracks and roads, crashing awkwardly into thick vegetation. Good capture!
