See these whacky birds? We live near some of them! They are called a Bush Stone-curlew.
They have a really crazy cry, which they mainly use at night. Some people call curlews the Screaming Woman Bird, and there have even been lots of calls to the police because of them! The nickname may give you a guess as to why!:) They can also stand really really still, and can easily be mistaken for statues.
Our dad has seen some little baby curlews, and he thought they were very very cute. He said they looked like little versions of Big Bird.
Thanks to our mum's dad, who took the second photo on his cool camera (which mum seriously considered hiding until after he left :P).
