Well, he sure has a mouth full! I've never heard of this bird, Debbie. Your shot of him is just fantastic! #1409433

Debbie Bray September 19, 2011

Thank you Terry! He's an Australian bird, I guess that's why you've never heard of him. lol! Generally, if you see a bird with a mouth full, then you know he's feeding young somewhere, and directly underneath this old broken branch, is a nest burrowed into the sand. #9680572
