This discussion reminds me that about a decade ago I was driving from Brisbane 
to Sydney and as I was passing through Scone, not far south of Quirindi, I was 
99 percent certain I saw a Spotted Bowerbird fly across the New England 
Highway, through a local park. Unfortunately I couldn't stop, and because of my 
lack of certainty I unfortunately never reported or recorded it. Maybe I was 
right all along, and I should have chased it harder. Make of this belated claim 
what you will, but I doubt I'd mistake a Spotted Bowerbird for a female Satin - 
they are uber familiar in SE Qld.

Anyway, I've always remembered that sighting every time I've driven through 
that part of the world since, and looked out for them. Maybe this anecdote 
might give this thread some extra credence...
