Just to clarify my reference to the shooting of Bustards in the Top End.
A brief summary of where it came from:
During 1942-43 Bustards were reported as ?fairly common? in suitable
areas and ?many thousands? were shot for food by troops stationed
Rhodes, L. J. (1944).
Birds of the Adelaide River District, Northern Territory.
Emu 44: 87-93.

Happy birding
