General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
About the size of a small Red Wattlebird.
Sorry for the terrible photo's, but it was through the caravan window & flyscreen. It was gone before we could get out the door.
Very difficult to find the id on this one, but that's because it's a juvenile. Adults look quite different.
