I've sent you a small file image. If anyone else wishes to see it, would you 
mind if they contact you for a forwarding of the image?  I'm still on the 
never-ending birding trip, with two birds to go before end of June to make my 
targeted 'half-year' species list of 700. I will be home for a week in mid July 
if anyone needs a big file image.  BTW if anyone knows where I have best shot 
at Regent Bowerbird in Brisbane, please let me know (tonight!). Recent 
locations please. Isn't there a cafe somewhere near Mt Glorious with tame birds?

PS: Number 698 was Inskip Black-breasted BQ today, and I thought it worth 
mentioning  somewhere that for some reason the area with 'platelets' appears to 
have shrunken, and I took hours, not the usual minutes to find a bird.  Not 
sure if its the predomination of ferns and spreading Lantana, or if a cat has 
moved in, or if, as usual, I'm grasping for excuses.

Hi John,
that is very interesting. Have you put the photo online ? And if so what is
the link to it. I'd be very interested in seeing it.

Thanks for replying,
