Like Marnix I couldn’t resist having a look to see whether the RH had moved on, and spent about an hour there.  It probably has.  I also saw the Brown Quail.


This is only for people who have been seriously birdwatching for less than a year.  Quite a few of these were in the patch of plantings.  Can you tell me what it is?   Unlike many ‘What’s this?’ snaps, all the information to identify it is there (except maybe one thing).  If you want to reply to me I’ll tell you what it is and how you can tell.

I popped out to Cooleman Ridge at lunch today. Only had 15 mins to search

for the Regent Honeyeater before the rains came.


Did get great views of 3-4 Brown Quail just after the second gate from

Freebody Place. They disappeared into the eucalypt/acacia regrowth. The

quail continued to call the whole time I was there.
