Need Help Indentifying Birds!

by Leannika Simmons
(TAS, Youngtown, 7249)

We have a group of birds at our house and I don't know what they are. I live in tasmaina, and the bird has black halfway don the body and brown the other half. It also has black spots on the brown bit of its body. They have short tails, and love to run around. These birds are easy to catch, because the group that I have at my house normally don't fly. They have yellow around their beak, but I am sure they aren't blackbirds. PLEASE HELP!
