Hi Gordon,

Pizzey and Knight says ..."The principal mainland races readily hybridise,
producing intermediates with varying amounts of black and/or white on their
backs (observable along the Melbourne-Sydney highway)."

I have regularly seen  examples here in Penrith with white backs.

Regards, Mike Simpson
Penrith, NSW, Australia
