Bush Stone-curlew are large ground dwelling birds with long, stick-like legs.
They have dark brown feathers streaked with black and reddish-brown on top and white with clear black streaks underneath. They have a striking yellow eye with a bold white eyebrow and a small black beak.
Bush-stone Curlew are found throughout Australia.
The curlews typically rest during the day, relying on their cryptic plumage to hide them from potential predators. Mainly nocturnal, they feed after dark on small vertebrates and insects.
