I've been reading the thread. They're discussing the cover photo of September's
Australian Birdlife. Looking at the cover, I can see what they're talking about
- a set of three adjacent feathers repeated three times on its back, another
similar pair of feathers on its "shoulder".
They do look very similar, but I'd like to see them overlaid on each other
before I believe they really are the same.
