Since the mercury was resting on 39 degrees celcius today, and steamy with it, all I could think of for posting was something with water in it. I knew I had some photos still from Centennial Park in Sydney, with more of the Hardheads.
According to Birds in Backyards "The Hardhead is only found in Australia, though is occasionally seen in New Guinea and other islands".

Later addition: 39 degrees celcius (or centigrade), is equal to 102.2 degrees fahrenheit; that's still warm!
