Apostlebird


Apostlebird searching for water
What a perfect camouflage! One nearly cannot see the large bird on this picture. It looks a bit like a sparrow or finch, but in fact there are rather relatives of starlings and mynas. I saw it on a roadhouse at the northern Stuart highway.
I think the bird is quite unmistakable, but I'd love to know what they get their name for.
