I've just returned from a Larapinta walking trip and managed to spend time 
around Ellery Creek Big Hole and Ormiston Gorge unsuccessfully trying to locate 
this Emu-wren to photograph in the localities suggested in "Birds of Australia" 
(Thomas, Thomas et al) and "Finding Australian Birds" (Dolby and Clarke). I'm 
returning there early June, this time by 4WD, and want to have another try.
Has anyone seen them recently, in which locality and at what time of the day? 
My only thought is that as breeding doesn't start until August they're spread 
out and perhaps flightier than when breeding?
Thanks and cheers
