G'day Greg

Well done for putting your head above the parapet.  I thought your pics looked 
good for Broad-bills but I haven't had much experience with them and wasn't 
aware of the tail structure differences either.    So I've learned something 
thanks to you!  

Did you see the report of the Sydney pelagic where someone called Streaked 
Shearwater and the bird morphed into a young Wanderer?  Nowhere to escape on a 
small boat.

I recently spent a year in nw Tanzania ( and 
found that some of the accepted and published knowledge of birds of the area 
was wrong.  Some species supposed to be there were actually closely related 
species from neighbouring Uganda or Rwanda.  Others that were called common 
were not.  Some occurred in different habitats from that described.  

Hopefully others will look at my records and confirm or correct them.  It was 
fun and gratifying to add to the bird knowledge of a remote corner of the world.

Congrats on your efforts on finding so many territories of the Shining 
Flycatcher.  Cool birds!
