Dear all,

On Saturday morning I picked up a dead female Red-chested Button-quail at 
Royal Brisbane Hospital, only about 2km from the Brisbane GPO.  It was in 
good condition and presumably was killed when it hit a building during an 
excursion on Friday night. Its next stop will be the Queensland Museum.

This is the second report of RCBQ in this part of the country in the last 
few weeks so presumably the drought is causing the birds to move towards 
the coast.  It's a species local birders should keep a lookout for.
