    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/allan_nielsen] New species for me too. Both Ross and I had no idea what it was at the time though.

    Nice capture, saw a lot of similar birds to this in Tasmania

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/hojucandy] They occur in mountain forests only, above 500m altitude (it's cousin, the Russet-Tailed Thrush, lives in similar environments but up to 750m altitude). Both are nearly identical, but I'm thinking this is probably the Bassian as there's no russet on the tail.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/daveaflicker] *jealous* we're not going to make it to Tassie this year.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/allan_nielsen] I second that, it is quite a nice crisp image.
