Hey all,

Well i'm half way though my trip around Australia and things have been going 
great. Actually they've been going so well that I have tons of time left and 
about 14 days to bird SA, Vic, and NSW and I have no clue about any places 
there. So this is a plea for help! Also the archieves are down right now so I 
can't search anything. Which stinks. Anyways if anyone could please send me 
some info on the following places I would love it. Also any suggestions of 
other areas, cause I am very flexible. I am going to try and check my e-mail 
later today again, and hopefully in a day or two, so quick replys would be very 
appreciated. thanks.

Strezliki Tract
This road is birdable in a 2wd right?
I've been told 26 km up the tract is good for CB Whiteface.
What are some other spots for other good birds? Eyrean Grasswren, TB Grasswren 
(is this even possible?). Also Orange Chat, Gibberbird, WF Chat, Chirruping 
Wedgebill, Cimmamon Thrush, Rufous Fieldwren?

Any advice on finding the Short-tailed Grasswren. I was told Stoke's Hill 
Lookout between Bliman and Wilpena. Any other info?

What are some good locations at this spot? I need pretty much all the southern 
birds, but I guess some of my main targets would be (and I dont even know if 
all these are possible, like i said i have never looked at any of the southern 
bird loactions before) Mallefowl, Regent Parrot, Elegent Parrot, SC Parrot, 
Striated Grasswren, Shy Heathwren, SB Thornbill, Purple-gaped HE, Yellow-plumed 
HE, Chesnut Quail Thrush, Soutern Scrub Robin, Gilberts and Red-lored Whistler.

Also any spots for Malle Emu-wren and Black-eared Miner?

Any other suggestions for other locations would be great too. Like I said, I 
was totally caught off guard having done so well so far.

At the moment though I'm stuck in Alice Springs and the car is at the mechanics 
right now. Hopefully I'll be good to go later today though. For anyone 
interested i'm 20 days into the trip, have gone 11500 km and am up to 358 
species for the trip. About 120 lifers. Cairns highlights included RN Crake, 
Cassowary, BF Parrot Finch, BF Finch, and Eungella HE and BBBQ on the way up. 
Easily got Kalkdoon Grasswren and Carpitarian GW in Mt. Isa. Actually watched 
the Carpitarian grasswren for an hour in full view from 10 meters away from my 
car with the scope! Amazing pics of it. Darwin highlights included both 
rock-pigeons, all 9 finches (in one day), partridge pigeon, chestnut rail 
(heard only), Brown Bobby (sitting in a tree), Rufous Owl, and a surprising 
amount of hooded parrots. Alice has been good too. Dusky Grasswren and RC Emu 
Wren. Found a pair of emu wren with three recent fledlings. Got great views and 
some good pics. Also Spinifexbird, Black Honeyeater, Bourke's Parrot, and
d Whiteface (surprisingly found at Kunoth Well).

Okay thats all for now that's for any help

Good Birding,
Ross Gallardy
currently in Alice Springs
