Hello all

Let me be right up front about it - I would be the most hopeless bird
identifier on this list.

In the first place, they always seem to be too hidden in foliage to get a
proper look.

In the second place, I have trouble finding anything in the field guides
that look like what I did see.

Be that as it may, over the Easter we spent a little time in the Ganmain
Forest (about 55 km west of Wagga Wagga) and saw (right out in the open this
time, for a change, right beside the dirt track that leads in to the 'back'
of the forest from the Western end) three birds which I can identify only as
SPs - these actually looked like the illustrations.

Could I have mistaken something more common for a SP?  If so, what?

Anyway, on the off-chance that they were actually SPs, I thought I should
tell the list.
