My thanks to those who were kind enough to contact me privately to query my identification of Danny's thornbill as Striated. I thought the crown was streaky rather than scalloped and that the ears were streaked, but it seems that my ageing eyes are betraying me. I readily concede to those more astute than I and accept that it's a Brown Thornbill. Interestingly, they wouldn't normally be expected to start nesting for at  least another month.

Language is the apparel in which your thoughts parade in public. Never clothe them in vulgar and shoddy attire. George W. Crane
