****************MEGA ALERT!!****************

There is an amazing record of A black-breasted Button-Quail in Canberra!!!!!!
Terry Gourley saw the bird and he described it as a quail which was speckled 
black. He is a reliable observer and has much experience with Stubble, Brown 
and Painted and saw the bird down to 5 or 6 feet!! He said the bird was shaking 
and was exhausted and he could have picked it up - sounds good to me!! He saw 
it on Sunday after the amazing storms we had here on Saturday. He saw it in the 
South East corner of the Pine Forest at the back of Mount Majura - where I know 
he goes most weekends. This is all the information that I have, but I will try 
and give Terry a call tonight and may be try and twitch it tomorrow!!
