White-browed babbler - Pomatostomus superciliosus

This morning I was able to find some local birds on a morning walk. This species babbler, and is usually more common as you explore the bottom east of the Northern Territory. They are a subcategory of birds also referred to as log runners. One thing from the photographs I have seen over the years is that their legs are also very far back towards their tail.

They are an interesting bird. Although you can easily see them flying around, they prefer to stick in small groups and walk around looking for insects most of the day, with their large curved beak. They are very good at looking for food, and these two birds were finding a fair bit to eat as I sat down to watch them only for a few minutes.
