Bush thick-knee
Burhinus grallarius
The Bush thick-knee is commonly called the Bush stone-curlew.  It is most active at night and its presence is often revealed by loud, eerie, wailing calls. The bush thick-knee has become very rare in southern pastoral areas due to habitat disturbance and predation. It feeds on the ground and eats insects and other invertebrates.
