Well lucky Maryborough Birdwatchers is all I can say! Today 27 March I took 
Kris Tindige, and Sita, from West Papua to Inskip Point to see the 
Black-breasted Button-quail. We did not see any. This is my first failure there 
so it is particularly annoying when I really wanted to succeed for someone from 
so far away. They did understand that one goes to look for, not necessarily 
look at, BBBQs.

For those not aware of my own BBBQ saga, I first looked for one in about 1985 - 
on a day on which Wayne Longmore plucked a BBBQ feather from a warm platelet 
but none of us saw a BBBQ - and after many efforts finally succeeded at Inskip 
Point on Boxing Day 2003. (The euphoria of this amazing event contributed 
strongly to my decision to move back to Qld after nearly 40 years in the 
southern wilderness.)  Since then I have seen a pair near Rosewood SE Q, seen 
them at Inskip Point on I think 5 more occasions (100% hit rate until today) - 
and had 100% failure at Yarraman a well known spot for everyone else.

Despite this and in spite of a horrible wind we had a great day including 
excellent views of a White-eared Monarch at Inskip Point and of a Spotted 
Harrier on the way back to Brisbane.
