These following images of an accommodating [relatively] pair were taken on the Macalister River at Maffra. The male has a mane!!
Downside to the species:
* defecating everywhere [especially paddocks - can't be good for bovine or ovine health]
* having a pathetic drawn out 'waaa' for a voice Simpson & Day
* they are a pretty bird
* and the boy has a mane!
