Pearl Beach in NSW. My father had seen it the week before in the same spot 
which is about 500 metres from the beach, about 20 metres above sea level on

  The Field Guides that I use have Russet-tailed at the very southern of its 

  I would love some advice from any experts out there. Keen to tick one or the 
other as I was in a similar predicament in Lamington NP where many of you wrote 
to me saying both species are seen near O'Riellys!
