These fly down from the north and breed down my way and other area.
Their nest is a burrow about a meter from the opening to the den area.
And its quite good to see this bird coming from underground and not from a tree.
But all this said theu have got a great colour and one thing I have picked up is when
they glide they look just like the paper plane we made as kids.
