Yellow Chat

1 male, 2 females. Feeding in short grass and perching on low bush. Bright yellow male had typical black chest crescent. Female had yellow eyebrow and was overall less dull yellow than male. All had pale eyes. Calling from cover. Observed from 5 to 20m away with binoculars and scope for over 10 minutes. Perching comfortably and feeding in the same grasses with Zebra finches and Pictorella munias. Previous proximal ebird records: 2005 same location, 2008 Burketown, 1979 Mt. Isa, 2002 Etheridge. Probably partially represents the chronically under-surveyed nature of the area. Also I was staking out this location for about 2 hours as I have seen Crimson chat and finches here often so could be easily overlooked.
