For those interested in this kind of thing, I've seen three subspecies of grey 
fantail around the Brisbane region this week, including an albicauda at John 
Oxley Common, Murrumba Downs and at one of my study sites in Kuraby.  It pays 
to look at the common birds!

On related note, in a recent set of surveys in the Lake Eyre region we 
consistently noted far fewer birds than last year.  Kestrels and robins which 
were ubiquitous last year were notably absent this time. Still some good birds 
out there, including 17 letter-winged kite on the Strezlecki track, though none 
left at last year's breeding sites on the Birdsville track.
