Tony Lawson posed the question :

2. What is it about WA that 'fades' birds?! eg Yellow-tailed to White-tailed Black-cockies; Eastern Yellow to Western Yellow and White-breasted Robins.

I disagree.  Western Spinebill vs Eastern Spinebill. 
Splendid Fairy-wren vs Superb Fairy-wren.  Red-capped Parrot vs
???  And Western Rosella and Red-eared Firetail hold their own.
