A few years ago, while researching the South-eastern Red-tailed Black Cockatoo in south-west Victoria, (south-east South Australia and south-west Victoria), my interest was reignited in another bird that lived in the area as well.   I returned to the Little Desert to learn more about them and find reference material recently.  Although I didn’t see any of the birds, I was taken to one of their amazing incubator mounds.

They are another fascinating and clever ‘Megapode’

Still needing to find reference material I travelled to Yongernow Malleefowl Centre in Ongerup WA.   These birds are difficult to see in the wild when you are looking for them, so this was an ideal place to get the reference material needed
