CommentWe thank BLP member Bill Betts for recommending a visit to Kirkalocka Station where our hosts Jarrod and Blair gave excellent advice on birding. We found a family of Western Quail-thrush with adult birds catching insects for two juveniles. The male can be distinguished from Chestnut-breasted Q-t by the white malar stripe which is broader at the base and a broader black breast-band which has a narrow white edge-band not present in Chestnut-breasted Q-t. Western Q-t is recognized as a separate species by IOC and most other authorities.
EquipmentCanon 1Dx II + 600 mm f/4 III + 1.4x III extender, hand-held. Manual, partial metering, AI Servo spot AF, f/5.6, 1/1600 sec, ISO 50. Processed using DPP4 and PSE14 with Neat Image plug-in.
LocationKirkalocka Station, Western Australia
