Re Bronzewings:  Deakin University (Geelong) has Bronzewings that trot 
around the lawns - or really, the tend to sit still a lot under shady 
trees on the lawn.

Re Songlark: There have been a number of reports of birds 'bothering' a 
fallen comrade.  One I heard (here? on ABC radio?) was of New Holland 
Honeyeaters pecking a memebr of their flock that had flown into a 
window.  After a while the bird regained consciousness (or the ability to 
move) and flew off with the others.  Perhaps the Songlark was trying to 
get its partner 'up and going'.
