 Hi all,
I am curently staying on a station between Winton and Boulia in Central 
Queensland.  This morning we heard strange noises from a tree outside and on 
investigating found a brown speckled medium/large bird with a very pale 
yellow breast, black eye and solid black beak.  The markings around the eye 
were distinctly different above and below the mid line.  I think it might 
have been a juvenile (little bit of pink at gape) spotted Bowerbird, but the 
breast had no barring or splotches - just plain - more like the 
fawn-breasted, which is way out its range, according to the books.  Others 
i"ve looked at are great and Western Bowerbirds.   Anyone with better 
knowledge on this subject can help?
