RE Lyn Saint's request:

Hi Lyn,

A worthwhile site for potential Gibber Birds and Cinnamon Quail Thrushes is
the Hutchison Monument about 11km south of Coober Pedy, on the eastern side
of the road.  Pull in there, and explore downhill to the east.

Alice Springs is quite dry ATM (no rain since mid-January), so the bush
birds are not so plentiful/obvious.  Nevertheless, try the road from Alice
Springs to Santa Teresa.  The first 40km has a variety of habitats - the
first 14km beyond the airport roundabout is bitumen, thereafter unsealed
(may be rough, but you would not need 4WD or high clearance unless it rains
in the few days before you travel).
