we have a lot of Tasmanian Native Hens, but two that live just next to our house are so accustomed to us they are at ease when we wander about and I 'talk' to them and they just continue with their eating, sitting etc.
They disappeared for about 2 weeks then one day appeared with 4 young chickens who have continued to grow and they too have become comfortable with our presence. These are wild birds and others in nearby dam are off like a shot when I appear.

Love the photos and story, had never heard of these birds. Amazing what you learn in this forum!

The leucistic swan was reasonably close to the track, and therefore the camera, today.
