BUSH STONE - CURLEW
Bush stone-curlew or bush thick-knee (Burhinus grallarius), obsolete name Burhinus magnirostris) is a large (55-60cm wingspan), ground-dwelling bird endemic to Australia. Although it looks rather like a wader and is related to the oystercatchers, avocets and plovers, it is a terrestrial predator filling an ecological niche similar to that of the roadrunners of North America.
