Hi Carol, and Colin, and anyone else interested.

I have seen Chestnut Quail-thrush eating ants so it's not too hard to
suggest that the Spotted do it. The other alternative is that the birds were
stealing food from the ants. My chooks do this a fair bit, especially where
the meat ants have their trails. They just stand by the 'highway' and pick
off what they want.
