Hi Bob,
            Nice report. Just one thing, does attracting the STGrasswrens
mean tapes, pishing or the Audobon squeaker?  By just sitting on an
uncomfortable rock 50m south of the lookout and waiting perhaps fifteen
minutes I got some great views three or four years ago.
            With the Kalkadoon GW, after many futile attempts at finding
them honestly , we finally resorted to playing the first three calls of the
Dusky GW tape, (actually of the Kalkadoon taped and named Dusky before the
split from Dusky) with instantaneous results. The White-throateds at Gunlom
and Blacks at Mitchell River came in to the Audobon squeaker. Other birdos
have told me of similar responses to tapes from other Grasswrens.
