Thanks for the timely suggestions, particularly to Lindsay Popple, who 
suggested Chinaman Creek Dam at Cloncurry, having seen large numbers in 
mid-August.  I'm happy to report that the Pix are still on the job there, 
though seemingly in much less apparent numbers. This is a perfect example of 
how helpful Birding Aus can be. Thanks again all.

Pictorella Mannikin – any current Qld locales?
Hi folks, My increasingly bogie-ish challenge to find is Pictorella Mannikin, 
which I’ve missed once this year in Gulf country and twice in NT/WA. I don’t 
have any other outstanding northern breeding species, and down to only a 
half-dozen breeding species continent-wide. For a bird that was so underfoot 
two years ago, I’m at a loss to explain my lack of success in finding Pix. If 
anyone has current sightings or knowledge of current sightings (this year only 
please) anywhere in Queensland besides pet shops, please let me know. Big final 
road-trip for the year begins tomorrow – a final long-range zig-zag throughout 
many wonderful regions, with exciting prospects of my first Vic Desert Neale 
Junction venture. Will report how I go. John Weigel
