Heard more often than seen, Bush Stone-curlews are well known for their high-pitched wailing cries in the evening and early morning when they are most active. During daylight hours they mostly hide amongst shrubs, bushes and leaf litter where their cryptic plumage renders them difficult to see. Once extremely numerous across much of Australia, their populations have drastically declined in southern states to the extent that they are now considered Endangered in Victoria and New South Wales. In northern parts of Australia they have fared somewhat better and NT populations are secure. Original Coloured Pencil artwork recreated as a premium quality print. Open Edition.
