Australian Bustard - The Sahvanah Way

Stopping today besides some of the few fenced properties out here, I spied a Bustard walking by the fenceline. Before I could get any closer with a better camera the bird makes an incredible bark type noise and flew away. Seeing as these birds have been hunted for the better part of 80,000 years, I am not surprised that it was quick to fly away.

Having better photographs from the Central Desert, I was not too disappointed. But this makes camels, and a bustard the only things I have seen on my way through the great savannah towards QLD. Heading towards a third night on this road, I am pleased to see that there are trees up ahead. Also what looks like mountains starting to appear as well.
