Do you get a thrill from being pedantic Phillip V.
I seldom comment but who gives a rat's arse if you spell it with or without
a capital A or use the word in a specific or general sense?
Don't fill birding-aus with nonsense.

Hi David,
Yes you are correct. I was using the word partly in the general but mainly
the specific sense. I could well (probably should) have used a capital A, or
used a word like Koori but then I could not be sure the context would be
entirely correct either. I am confident that the pots showing these northern
hemisphere fauna were not part of a display of art of northern hemisphere
aboriginal people, but of Australian Aboriginal people.
