We made a stop at Musgrave to fuel up the cars and to make some last shopping. before heading further north. They had some pools with water and several species of birds. And even a sweet-water crocodile. But the last one was too hard to get a shot at.

This is a tricky species. Several subspecies and a very complicated family. And they vary rather much in color patterns. To be sure you better refer to them as Buctcherbirds :)

Lives in tropical forests. It can easily be mistaken for similar looking birds but I think I got it right :)
