Hi John and Birding-aussers,
                                            It's interesting to hear that
the Short-tailed Grasswrens did not respond to the tape, despite the dodgy
time of year you were looking for them. The vocalizations of Short-taileds
are different to Striateds and this is one of the major reasons (amongst
others) that the birds have been recognised as a full species. I have heard
of other birders who have looked for Short-taileds using the BOCA tape
recording of Striateds and drawn a blank, even when they knew that
Short-taileds were present.
