Can you see it? Probably not at first but if I tell you its in the exact center that might help but still its difficult to find it; for its colour and pattern blends in so well with the dry leaves and undergrowth on this side hill. You can understand then, how surprised and pleased I was to find this secretive bird in full sight walking across the the road as I drove to the top of a hill. It didn't even disappear in flight as my car pulled to a stop to watch it. It was moving across the road in a sort of patterned, repeative movement. First it would jiggle back and forth on one leg, then move its other foot forward. Then it would repeat this back and forth movement again before putting the other foot forward. At the same time I could hear its call, and coming from the other side of the road was a similar sound. Halfway across the road it turned and headed back in the direction it came from; perhaps it had finally became aware of my car there, which I had moved over to the side of the road in case there was oncoming traffic (which there wasn't). It never at any time flew off in a burst of speed, but rather walked into the ditch and up the slight hillside of it. The first photo of this post shows it disappearing into the underbrush. This was really a great photo opportunity.
