Oh, that's a crane. The neighborhood cranes are still hanging about so I guess the summer isn't over yet. Wonderful birdy head shot, the texture, orange head and amber eye really sparkle.

nice to see the Brolga up close. I did see a few when I visited Queensland three years ago. :)

we've actually seen brolgas in the wild up north, but not this close. They are amazing birds. Happy travels.

That's a lovely bird. I think I've seen them a couple of times (but not in the wild).
