Plains-wanderers are small grassland birds, standing about 20cm in height and weighing less than 100g. They are one of the world’s most unique birds - their origins can be traced back to Gondwana and they are the only member of their taxonomic family, with no close relatives.

Their feather patterns give them extremely good camouflage in grasslands and unlike many bird species, the females are larger and more colourful than the males. The males also complete the incubation and raising of the chicks once the females lay their clutch of eggs.

Plains-wanderers eat a mix of seeds, leaves and invertebrates and require specific grassland conditions to live in. Availability of suitable grassland habitat is a key threat to their future and they are now predominantly found in northern Victoria and New South Wales, with an estimated 250-1000 left in the wild.
