You're doing your best to keep this thread alive, Steve! :-)
Good info, though... thanks!
(ps: I find myself being very cautious drawing any inferences about relationships of birds from one continent to birds of another. I got burnt a few months ago when someone on another board posted a picture of a bird from South America. It looked like a bird in the thrasher family so I stated that it looked like some type of thrasher. Wrong. It looked like a thrasher but was actually a completely different family! So much for visual similarity being a determination of anything...)
