he he, woops.  Just realised all those things I forgot... :-)

        OK I'm in drouin, west gippsland.  I'm on 5 acers, just a little out of
the town.  It's kinda a hobby farm.  Mostly just farm land around the
place, there is a few tres around a old tip accross the road, but that
about the extent of "bush" about.  We've planted lots of native trees and
bushes aroud the house and there are quite allot of native birds that visit
(and some breed) there.
        Mostly all I saw of the bird was this little gray head.  It's back was 
olive-brown sort of colour, and I nevver got a look at it's belly.  I don't
quite know how to say what it sounds like, but it's sorta like a wip bird.
I haven't head it today at all.
