Some specialist information would be appreciated (and some of the answers
may be of more general interest).
1.      High on Mt Lewis (for those who don't know, Mt Lewis is near Kingfisher
Park, Far North Queensland) what is the approximate ratio of Atherton to
Large-billed Scrubwrens?
2.      How do the residents of Eungella pronounce the name of their town (and
therefore how should we pronounce the honeyeater's name)?  Is it
"YOUNG-eller", "Oon-jeller", "Un-geller", etc??
3.      While on the pronunciation kick, how should we pronounce Gerygone, and
why?  "Jer-riggonnee"?, "Ger-riggonnee"?, "Grigg-onnee"?
Thanks in anticipation of erudite replies.
