Brolgas, Grus rubicunda, at outback river IMG 7373 - The Australian brolga, one of the country's largest birds, is often referred to as a 'native companion' or 'Australian crane'. These birds were quenching their thirst from the murky pools that, during a savage drought, were all that remained of the Burke River that slices through the arid landscape near the Queensland outback town of Boulia.
