Dear Harry and Birding-aus,
YOU may consider it nonsense.
I consider Phillip's input useful and interesting. THERE IS a difference
between the generic term aborigine and the specific term Aborigine. Likewise
with other such matters Phillip chooses to point out.
I do give a rats arse.
Thankyou Phillip, I appreciate being reminded of correct use of language. It
certainly is not nonsense. Accurate communication is very important.
I always read Phillip's comments with interest. I value thoughtful
discussion on this site, rather than just "I saw A, B, C,..... bird at
'locality' (often poorly defined) Y ".
Like another recent contributor, I always wonder why certain birds are
constantly reported.

another pedant?
and proud of it,
