This is a very rare bird indeed! Native to the southern regions of Australia, this little bird has been known to migrate North to Arctic Norway. It’s insulated feet are heavy enough to crack through thin road-ice and its red feathers help the bird to be seen by motorist therefore avoiding ending up as ‘road-kill’. The Blue-legged Ice-stomper is a master at adapting to its environment. In the Summer, the bird looses its thick coat and heavy feet, and enjoys sunny days by the beach competing with the seagulls for a hot chip.
