Dear all,

A friend of mine, living in Surrey hills, described to me a greenish
yellow bird with a very prominent white-collar. It had its nest in vines,
and its eggs were spotted. Unfortunately, the nest was destroyed and the
eggs broken. I showed him a Slaters', and while he didn't land on anything
for certain, he thought it could be a Pale-yellow Robin. His other choice
was the Mangrove Golden Whistler. I would be grateful for any suggestions.


          a)This is not my sighting, nor my identification, merely a
question from a friend. 

          b)I myself have never seen either of these birds.

          c)My friend, like myself, is an amateur.

Property was not made by government, but government by and for it. The one
is primary and self-existent; the other is secondary and derivative.

All government, indeed every human benefit and enjoyment, every virtue,
and every prudent act, is founded on compromise and barter. ... Man acts
from motives relative to his interests; and not on metaphysical
