Magpie-lark (Grallina cyanoleuca) is not a shorebird, but here it is striding down the beach. This is an adult male, the horizontal black line through the eye with the white brow is the identifier, the female has a black line down through the eye and a white throat. Very widespread bird in Australia.

ISO800, 606mm, f9, 1/3200 by Sony.

As Dave said, love that attitude! He's really strutting his stuff Greg. Wonderful capture of this handsome species, what a character.

I can just imagine the personality of this bird, from the strident pose. Lovely light and nice perspective.

Great-looking bird and the striding pose makes him look quite proud. :)
