Emu-Wren. That is a clever suggestion, for reason of the emblems of the two
clubs. Or maybe even just a picture of the tail feather of an Emu-Wren. I
can't see it as representing a water bird any more than a non water bird.
Anyway it is just a symbol and I hope it helps. 

I for one find it hard to write I am a member of Birdlife Australia. Just as
I disliked the change from RAOU to Birds Australia and the change from Bird
Observers Club of Australia to Bird Observation and Conservation Australia.
Both new names were nonsensical to say I am a member of. I am happy to be a
member of a something club or Union (as the RAOU was, pompous as that name

I am, as the rest of us are, a mammal, not a bird. How can a mammal be a
member of Birdlife? It is ridiculous! But I'll live on regardless.

As Birdlife Aus is a merge of Birds Australia and BOCA,
I always thought that the new bird logo should have been an Emu-Wren.

  I do admit, it's not found all over the continent and I used not to 
believe in its existence till I actually found some at Croajingalong...
