A winged creature from Indonesia has bird-lovers in a flap!
News of his arrival spread quickly with ‘twitchers’ from all corners of Australia flying in to catch a glimpse.
Sheryl Keates, from the Northern Territory Field Naturalists Club, was one of the first spotters on the scene.
“Many people have come to see this bird. People have been from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Broome-you name it they’ve been here and they’re still coming,” she said.
