The Black-throated finches referred to in the attachment are the northern subspecies, not the listed endangered southern subspecies. The SPRAT profile states that the southern subspecies hasn't occurred around Brisbane since the 1930s.

The southern subspecies is fairly reliably found at Woodstock west of Townsville if anyone is up that way. I've found them three attempts out of three.

The attached item in today’s Australian is an interesting challenge to the campaign against the “Indian miner”.  Is his position true today?  (Great name of the correspondent, by the way!)
