March 2nd, 2017 was a lucky day. I saw some Jacanas foraging in a small creek, so I thought I could bring my camera and try to get a nice shot. When I returned, I saw this speceis instead, which I had not seen before. It was late in the afternoon, so there was not much light to work with. The weird feathers on the top of the head were intriguing. Then on a trip to look for the Three-wattled Bellbird, we were lucky to find a group of about 5 individuals. They had at least one nest, as one individual would rest on the ground from time to time, while the others displayed aggressively towards us.
