We have had two sightings of Spotted Bowerbirds in our garden in 28 years,
Pittsworth   27*43' 58"S  151*37' 97"E is situated in Basaltic Uplands on
the Darling Downs Qld. I can only find details of one sighting which was
01-08-'88. When we observed a male bird under a Wilga Geijera parviflora [a
native tree to our area and much favoured by Spotted Bowerbirds, as a bower
site further west].
