General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Riverland and possibly elsewhere
Aggressive to birds. Orange beak & legs. Yellow eye patch. Grey motley breast.
In 2 of these photo's of the same specimen, you can see the eye-patch (yellow skin) looks to be very different in size. This is just a matter of the eye & head moving, stretching or compressing the skin.
