Partridge Pigeon, Mitchell Plateau

This was the only place I really dipped a target bird. In this case I was looking for Black Grasswren - this is the only place on earth that they exist after all. The blow was softened though by the sight of my first Partridge Pigeon. The yellow-faced race of the Kimberleys are more vulnerable than their red-faced cousins in NT. According to the guy running the helicopter tours of Mitchell Falls they are pretty common around his shed. I saw two in all.
