Flat battery bird

Flat battery bird

This handsome bird is a Water thick-knee or Dikkop. Although it is primarily a nocturnal bird (see the large eye) it is often found standing around on river banks and is very easy to approach and photograph. It has an interesting call which slows down toward the end giving the impression that it is being played on a tape deck with flat batteries..
