g'day all,
Last Sunday,when atlassing the lakes on the outskirts of Camooweal Darlene Kneen and I noted 3 Magpie-larks imitating Comb-crested Jacana's by walking and feeding on the 20-25cm diameter lilies. They were about 2 meters from the waters edge.
I have seen a Buff-banded Rail doing the same thing but I would imagine that would not be so rare ?
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
