It got 12 suggestions with the most frequent being Rufous Fantail (4) being
closely followed by Noisy Miner (3). Three people came up with the correct
answer - Chestnut-rumped Heathwren. In the videos I have, the tail fan is
very quick, only lasting one fame (0.04 sec). It is so quick that my eyes
cannot usually detect it in the video unless I look at it frame by frame.
The quiz picture is taken from near the end of - see if you can detect it.

  Not the usual view of this local species in the photo attached and not a
view covered by the field guides. You are welcome to send me which species
you think it is and I will put up the answer tomorrow.
