Hi Greg,

Sorry, it's possibly not explained well enough on  The Tawny
Grassbird shots on bird-o are not the bird in question.  The possible Tawny
Grassbird from Victoria can be seen here:

Simon and I put up some Tawny and Little Grassbird shots on Wildiaries
yesterday so people could have a bit of comparison for themselves.  If
anyone else has shots they want to put up, please feel free.

Tawny Grassbird
Little Grassbird
