Great sighting Harrisi. As Nature Map expands into new regions, we are adding to taxonomy as we go. So this is the first EVER Nature Map Mallee Fowl. Well done.

Thanks JK. I have visited Round Hill Yathong etc about a dozen times in past two decades. I have seen Malleefowl at least four times, often along or cross the long round hill , south/north road. This sighting however was on the famed wheat field track :)
