Hi Dave, et al
I'm led to believe all the 'Brown' type TBs on King Island are Tas. TB, and
there are no browns left. The Tas TBs there are much more likely to be in open
and drier forests than in the rest of Tassie.
You'll certainly get some 'plastics' - Turkey, Peafowl and Pheasant are common
- though Pheasant are pretty wary and hard to photograph. They do see
California Quail as well, though not commonly. We had nice Moreporks in a farm
shed at Pegarah, but you might have to ask around to find out who the farmer
was/is. Lots of the other Tassie endemics are pretty common. You can also get
Little Raven, and Willie Wagtail!!!!
