My modus operandi while at Gluepot was to rise early, before sun-up, have a cuppa and head out to a chosen locality and be 'in place' as the sun came up. As we all know, 'the early twitcher gets the bird' seems to be a pretty faithful guideline to follow in this game.
Posted walking track through some Spinifex - wouldn't be hard to get disoriented without those blue triangles!
It was using this method that I mostly saw the Babblers etc on the ground, and the Treecreepers, Robins, Thornbills, Whistlers and the like in the trees and shrubs. The bird hides tended to be best for the Honeyeaters and Parrots.
On one occasion, while standing still inside a bush I heard the very high-pitched 'seeep' contact call of the Chestnut Quail-thrush. It was hard to pin exactly where the call was emanating from. As I waited, the birds gradually worked their way toward me and came into view. The female in particular just strolled right by.
