Hi there Tony and Jill,

In 1978 we were camping in the Kalbarri NP in Western Aust and the ranger
gave me a copy of the bird list for the park. I noticed that the list
included the black winged form of this species. Kalbarri is not far from
Dirk Hartog Island.

Although given good instructions on where to find this species I was
unsuccessful in locating it.
