The Australian Bustard, commonly known as the plain’s turkey, a large  bird with a wingspan of 1-2 m often seen in small groups especially during the breeding season late dry, where males will extend a white breast sack which he sways to attract females. This bird is common in north Australia and prefers open country where it feeds on insects like grasshoppers.
