Bowerbird at Quirindi, south of Tamworth

While driving into Quirindi from the New England Highway, I saw what I saw a
bowerbird land beside, then fly into an orange-berried bush in a garden.
Bins were'nt handy and anyway was driving to a meeting with no time to stop.
At a glance it looked a bit like a pale Western Bowerbird with which I'm
familiar so I assumed it was a Spotted Bowerbird. But Birdata shows Quirindi
a bit outside its range but just inside the Satin Bowerbird range so am now
assuming it was probably a female of the latter species. Would anyone
familiar with birds in the area care to comment?
