I agree with Geoffrey's background or baseline or
bias on this. Although he is 20 to 25 years in front of me. He was more on the
Geelong side of the right area whilst I was more on the Melbourne side of the
right area. It then struck me as odd that "I used to wonder
why I had no luck finding those other, more brightly-coloured chats that were
next to the WFC in my Cayley". Fair point but odd book. Why would they be on the
same page? They live in different areas. Cayley's book loosely attempts to put
birds of similar habitat and size together. Well that appears to be the
arrangement. Then again the Rose, Pink and Red-capped Robins are on the same
plate as those chats! Lots of habitats combined there! (As "Birds of forest
borders and grasslands").
Here is a sad joke on MS Outlook. As
I went to send this, my silly spell checker asks if "WFC" should be "KFC"!
