You may call it Scaly, Australian Ground, or lately Bassian but my world 
list is the Clements one which calls it Olive tailed.

If we have two Groung thrushes and one was called Russet tailed and one 
Olive tailed which point out possible identification aids, I find that a 
useful thing. What does Bassian mean? Is it named after George Bass or 
Bass Straight or Bass Point near Wollongong?

Merry Xmas
