several, Pale White-eye 6 Little Woody Is with a Yellow White-eye

Tropical Scrubwren looks, sounds and behaves nothing like Large-
billed Scrubwren, an anticipated lumping seems premature......
Northern Scrub-robin also behaves and sounds quite unlike the New
Guinea birds, would be interesting to get some analyses of this one too.
