Just filling in some time before I catch the red-eye back to Sydney after
three weeks in WA. Travelled over 7000 kms and saw 200 species exactly
(cursed Spotted Turtle-Dove which I ignored in my first few days in Perth
was the last addition). I hope to get a trip report up and running next
week, but have a few questions that I thought may be answered before I do.
1. Are Hooded Robins found on Rottnest? I had a quick view of the back of a
Robin on the island as I rode past on a bike. I said Hooded at the time, but
subsequently only saw them elsewhere up near Overlander Roadhouse. Any
chance I was correct?
2. What is the Whipbird at Stirling Range and Fitzgerald River under the
Schodde and Mason taxonomy? I heard at both, but only saw a Whipbird at Two
Peoples Bay. This is definitely Western, but as far as I can tell the other
is Mallee. Any comments?
3. Are White-breasted Robins found at Nambung NP (the Pinnacles)? I had a
quick glimpse as it disappeared into scrub. Looked like this but seemed
I will give thanks to everyone who provided data on trips and Frank O'Connor
whose site was invaluable.
