I have never heard of that and it is interesting. Maybe this provides an explanation of Rawnley's Bowerbird, which is a hybrid between the two species. If a female attends a bower to mate with one bird and is taken over by the other species. See the latest Australian Field Ornithology 22 (2): 53-57 for a recent occurrence of such a hybrid.
