Having spent many years in the mallee I learnt a great respect for these amazing little birds! I have seen many nesting mounds over the years, and I have an understanding of their habits, their specialised nesting arrangements
and I can totally believe that they have been added to the endangered list -simply because they are ground dwellers and very vulnerable. There are so many predators now -with feral cats and dingoes and of course the humam element. If you have never seen a
nest or mound ! and you ever get the chance to go and see our wonderful Mallee Fowl in their natural habitat! I'm sure there are parks where you can go & see them! in South Australia or Victorian Mallee regions!
