Welcome Little Scrubfowl

Welcome Little Scrubfowl


I hear the Scrubfowl calling in the night, it sounds like warbley singing.

“They’re courting,” my Mum tells me.

I wonder what their court looks like? Are they king and queen of our garden?

Orange-footed Scrubfowl are a bird found in almost everyone’s backyard in the top end, they are an endearing and charismatic bird but prone to playing havoc peoples gardens!
