The Australian Painted Snipe is a little known wader known from northern and eastern Australia. In the Canberra region it is erratic in its appearance. A hard bird to get a clear view of. The camera and resultant footage has been pushed to its limit to give the viewer a feel for this elusive bird. Australian birds were recently given full species status from the closely related Greater Painted Snipe (Rostratula benghalenisis) of Eurasia and Africa.
