A Spotted Harrier Circus assimilis was observed and photographed in mid July 2013 in northern Queensland, as it foraged on foot for lizards, by walking long transects, flushing and chasing skinks on foot, and intermittingly flying short distances low over the ground. Capture success was 14.3% (n = 21 attempts). The Harrier appeared to locate the lizards at least partly by auditory cues, in behaviour previously undescribed for this species.
