Australian Owlet-Nightjar

    Newer Older

    There were lots of things on the ground at Oolambeyan NP!! First we went hunting for button-quail and although we came up short, we did flush upwards of 100 Stubble Quail. There were also hundreds of mice running around, along with the obligatory abundant Rabbits, Western Grey Kangaroos and Red Kangaroos.

    The roads at night were a major wildlife hazard. Although we never actually ran over anything, we only just missed numerous mice, a few kangaroos and the odd rabbit. Luckily, we saw this little fella pretty quickly and were able to stop and creep up to it as it sat on the road. Finally, an Owlet-Nightjar!
