Saw a strange looking juv Tawny-crowned H/E in the coastal heath about 2km 
south of The Gardens, Bay of Fires, Tas earlier this month. The bird's whole 
face and throat was coloured yellow (in a similair pattern to the black face of 
a Black-faced Monarch) rather than just the throat as illustrated in the field 
guides.(We didn't think the colouration was caused by pollen)
 Has anyone else observed this feature? Any locals (? Ian May) seen this 
before?. The next day we saw normal looking Tawnys ,both adult & juv, in the St 
Helens Point CA
