Dear Birding-Ausers,
As most of you may be aware the Spotted Quailthrush in S.A has recently been proclaimed as Australia's "most critically endangered bird". While this may indeed be the case it struck me that no-one has actually bothered to look for it! I am currently researching all aspects of the ecology of this bird in S.A. with a view to hopefully 'rediscovering' it. Preliminary research suggests that at least two birds were possibly seen as recently as 1995.
I'm making an appeal to the subscribers and readers of Birding-Aus across the country for anyone who has had field experience of this species in S.A. I have virtually exhausted all sources of previous published records. If anyone has records of this species in S.A. or know of anyone who has I would appreciate if you could pass them on to me either via Birding-Aus or direct to me at  Thanking you all in anticipation
David Harper
