To whoever was thinking of adding identification hints to their web
site: (Sorry! I've accidentally deleted the original posting).
I reckon that's a great idea. I find butcherbirds are often mistaken
for kookaburras/large kingfishers by novices. The outline is similar.
Could you also address the common "lay" perception (at least in these
parts)that anything smaller than a sparrow is always a "finch"? In fact
we only have one finch (Zebra)but lots of
thornbills/weebills/pardalotes/mistletoe birds etc etc!
