Have encountered the hybrid Crimson/Eastern rosella myself about two years ago while living at 'Arawang' property on the southern end of Cooleman Ridge.  I have a used to come and feed regularly. 
Painted Button-quail also seen a few times sunning at the edge of the tracks in the early morning.  Also Brown quail often heard calling before the fires...not so much since.  Have even seen a (collared) cat hunting quail and it's chicks in past years while walking through the house paddock.  Needless to say I sent him/her home quick smart!  (my subliminal message to all cat owners).

Hi all,
This morning, while looking for the Painted Button-Quail at Cooleman Ridge (it didnt show, but there were plenty of platelets), I came across a White-throated Gerygone, my first of the season.
At school (Weston), I came across a hybrid Crimson/Eastern Rosella. I reckon these have got to be one of the most beautiful birds.
Also at school, a Caper White (the butterfly, not the bird).
