The only birdie I got at Canterbury Golf Course (Moorefileds Rd, 
Roselands,Sydney) last tuesday was a  quail being viciously harrassed by noisy 
miners. Couldn't really get a good look at it as it flew off as I approached 
and i didn't have my glasses on, but it was a very drab, plain brown and about 
the size of a small rat, which is what i first thought it was. It eventually 
flew across the road into a garden trail by the miners. Any suggestions as to 
which quail or button quail it may be?
  There was also some ravens having a great time stealing golf balls as usual, 
and a small group of wood ducks grazing on the greens and making putting 
difficult with their droppings!
