Author's notes

I am not certain about this identification. Walking back towards the car I heard a lovely melodic call coming from a small bird, I believe it was a Brown Gerygone. I was amazed at the call coming from what was a small bird.

A female.

Brown Gerygones are a lot smaller and a more coastal bird, with only the occasional Winter record in Canberra.

Many thanks natureguy and Ryu, that makes far more sense. I really appreciate the assistance on this one. Cheers
