Hi Steve, yes had a look at my field guide.. you are right I think, either singing or yellow faced? Thanks, Hev.

Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best

Hi Heva 1,
remember when you look at your field guide, always check if the bird you want to identify, is likely to be found in that area. A yellow-faced HE in Alice would be hundreds of miles out of its range.
Cheers,
al

Hi Al, I stand corrected (with my dunces hat on in the corner!)LOL. Yes, it would be blown a long way off course if it was in Alice!! thanks for info and tip :-) Hev
