My best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous 2003 to everyone.

I've been going through my newly acquired Pizzey and Knight and see that
birds that I had listed as Rufous Night Heron and Australian Kestrel are
shown as Nankeen Night Heron and Nankeen Kestrel.  Can anyone tell me what
or where is Nankeen?

Cheers to all
