For a spindly creature that's all eyes and legs, the Bush stone-curlew packs a lungful of spook in their haunting crescendo cry. A threatened species in some Australian states, you won't get away with much on Maggie without being watched by a posse of these gangly little guys.  A comically eery presence magnified after dark by their orchestral wail.
