G'day all

I called into the Trawalla State Forest (a few km east of Beaufort in western 
Victoria) to check if Satin Flycatchers had returned (they had and I saw 
several at close quarters).  A large, moving object caught my eye at one point 
and walking towards me through the box forest was a Red Junglefowl.  This was a 
resplendent male with white and cream plumage and magnificent red comb and 
wattles.  It eventually wandered right up to me in response to my 'chook chook' 
calls.  When I walked away it gave a crow and proceeded to forage in the 
forest.  I suspect you would have to be quick to twitch it - no doubt it will 
be a meal for a fox in no time.
