    flight shots - what would you use?

    Duck massacre in Victoria, Australia

    An article like that would not have surprised me had it happened here in Cambodia. But in Oz??? Victoria is off my list of places to visit.

    Thailand Flycatcher help

    This one looks good to me: http://www.birdforum.net/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=190045. And I am sure the one in the article is not a Dark-sided, looks perfect for Asian Brown.
