A query from a birding friend. Anyone able to help please?
Steph and I returned from a trip into Queensland a very short while ago and I 
came back perplexed about a bird (two actually - some kilometers apart) near 
Longreach.  I thought I had found a new species until I recognised the pattern 
to exactly match that of the Red-capped robin.  The problem with both birds is 
that they were distinctly orange, not sort of, really orange.  Like day glow 
orange.  Are you familiar with a sub-species or local population with that
