[Extract] An icon of the outback, the Australian Bustard is commonly known as the Bush or Plains Turkey-so named for its once familiar and honoured status as a guest at Sunday or Christmas roasts rather than any close phylogenetic affinity to its North American namesake. It is widespread across mainland Australia, in open habitats, including plains, shrub lands and open woodlands, but is now mainly extinct in more settled areas.
