Hi Greg and birders,

Living next door to Barren Grounds and a regular visitor, I agree with Philips 
views on % sightings of these two birds.

Drive into BG and park just past the wardens house, approx 75 Metres. Walk back 
towards the main road and listen for their call. At this time of year it's 
mainly a two note whistle, and easy to imitate. Even better if you have a tape. 
This is where I normally find them.

Drive up and park at  the main car park. The track going up to the Lodge is the 
most consistent area for seeing Bristlebirds, again about 75 Metres. At the 
Lodge you will see 2 tracks, one goes to Cooks Nose, and the other is the 
Service Trail. This area, about 100 Metres down each track is also good for 
Pilot and Bristlebirds.

I can supply a mud map if required, to those birders planning to visit Barren
