Not Tasmania, but NW Qld but just a little east of Mount Isa

My Reader's Digest Encyclopaedia of Australian Wildlife shows
their nearest territory at about Julia Ck (to the East) and Urandangie to the
I know they have been in the Julia Ck sheep country but I was

further hazard for the many ground feeding (and ground breeding)
birds in this area.
