Final photo requests for Birds of Paradise and Bowerbirds

I am at last on the final proofs of the Birds of Paradise and Bowerbirds, with final selection of photos almost complete and payment to be organised thereafter. I am still missing both Huon Catbird A. astigmaticus and White-eared Catbird (Arfaks and West Papuan Is) in the narrow sense. Also looking for Eastern Parotia, can anyone help? We can offer a small payment.
Thanks

I would get in touch with Ed Scholes and Tim Laman as I know they have studied Eastern Parotias in the wild, they could very well have some photographs of the catbirds as well as they have done extensive surveys throught some parts of New Guinea.

Yep, already done and I remain hopeful for the Eastern Parotia, though no-one seems to have photographed Huon Catbird, and I am struggling for White-eared as opposed to Tan-capped or Ochre-breasted Catbird. It may be those two bowerbird family members remain sans photos in the book

Hopefully we can capture Huon Catbird when my group is there in July, however no doubt this will be too late for any inclusions into the book, but of course we will keep you posted.
