Brolga - native companion

Australian brolga, native companion, Grus rubicunda in outback Australia

Brolga Grus rubicunda IMG 7345 - The Australian brolga, one of the country's largest birds, is often referred to as a 'native companion' or 'Australian crane'. This bird was one of a group that arrived to quench their thirst in the murky pools that, during a savage drought, were all that remained of the Burke River, which slices through the arid landscape near the Queensland outback town of Boulia.
