Yes Tony i am the John you met at the Enoggera dam on saturday morning and i 
was wondering if i would hear from you! It would seem we have made quite a 
discovery. You said when i found you on the track again that you had seen some 
funny looking quail and had to go home and look them up, but i never would have 
thought BBBQ! If i had not seen the female i don't think i would have had the 
guts to call it either regardless of the black showing on the males. As i said 
in my post i got a fantastic look at the two males you observed and a female. I 
did go back this morning to try and find them but alas birds will be birds and 
they were a no show. Well done on the tick mate and maybe one day we can hook 
up and find them again together. Regards John Hammond..

Hi John,Firstly are you the John I met at Enoggora chasing the Robins? In any 
case I'm so glad you saw the female BBBQ and posted to Birding Aus as I saw the 
two males in that same area and was also struck by the black on the breast but 
couldn't, with my brief views, rule out Brown or Painted Button Quail. Makes a 
fabulous armchair tick for me too! Thanks again, see you 'round the 
traps.Cheers Tony
