While walking in the Aranda Bushland this morning I came across 20+ little cleared areas about 15 cm to 20cm diameter in E rossii dominated forest with a scattered shrub understorey. The little clearings looked like someone had swept the litter off them radially i e the litter was not piled up anywhere but appeared to be evenly distributed around them.

Could these be platelets and is acceptable evidence of the occurrence of Painted Button-quail?

Is there someone out there willing to come out and have a look at them to confirm or reject the idea?
