While working out in the Great Victoria Desert a few years back, my Aboriginal 
coworker suddenly yelled 'Turkey!', stopped the ute in a hail of dust and 
stones and reached into the back for his gun. The Turkey turned out to be an 
Australian Bustard and after a fair few misses Richard brought it down. My 
remonstrances about shooting protected birds were met with a disdainful remark 
about this not applying to indigenous people (I expect this is true but I 
wasn't going to argue, it was his country). Anyway, that night the Webber was 
set to work and we had BBQ Bustard. Dry and a bit tasteless, very like Turkey 
if anyone needs that info for their records.
