Can anyone help Jennifer with a good quality slide/digital image of a
Malleefowl?  If so please email directly:  


I have another question: Do you also have a picture of a malleefowl-Leipoa
ocellata, Malleefowl are large, ground-dwelling birds that roost in trees
but rarely fly. These birds have evolved a sophisticated system for
incubating their eggs. Malleefowl build elaborate mounds in sandy soil that
are filled with organic matter which produces heat as it rots. By opening
and closing the mound Malleefowl are able to precisely regulate the
temperature of the nest.

I also need it for the same brochure, same size.
Or pherhaps you know somebodey where i can get this picture.

Thanks for helping

Jennifer Ende
