I remember a noisy pitta staggering about Martin Place many years ago
too. If you go back through the Birding-aus archives there should be
something about it.

Last year my father told me he saw a quail (couldn't identify its
running frantically around Angel place in the city, not far from Martin
Place. He described it to be rather large and brown. I assumed it may
been a wayward Brown Quail or perhaps even a Japanese Quail which
managed to
escape from the grasp of a chopping board.
