User's notes

These birds had me stumped. There is one adult or two feeding a younger bird / s. The large round eye is dark or reddish at a pinch - there is no stripes down the front, there is no line through the eye. Gerygone? Thornbill? Its got me stumped. One youngster was given a moth to eat.

Thanks Liam. I said Brown Thornbill to someone but they said no and then I was all confused! (not on naturemap).
