Regent Honeyeater Field Officer

Hi

Does anyone know if there is still a field officer, I remember a long time ago when David Geering monitored the Capertee Valley for nesting and tracking the success of the population, but I do not know if he was the last and if so when he finished.

Cheers Chris

Sunshine Coast Pelagic August 27

The response to our inaugural Sunshine Coast pelagic trip with the big new boat, the 55ft *Crusader 1*, on Sunday July 30 was so vigorous that all 23 spots were filled within a few hours of the announcement.

Although the July 30 charter is intended as a trial, I have every confidence it will be . . . → Read More: Sunshine Coast Pelagic August 27

Magpies

The black- backed magpies come well down into Victoria. Coming south from Ouyen they are bb until about Avoca; and all around Beechworth too. I think white-backs take over between Bendigo and Ballarat. Stephen

When is a Magpie Black or White-backed?

Received yesterday The Australian Bird Guide. Pre-ordered from CSIRO. Only 3 weeks after the local bookshop had it in and we live in inner Sydney. So I’m a bit late to the book review party

Anyway to get used to how the guide worked I looked up a very common local bird. Well one I . . . → Read More: When is a Magpie Black or White-backed?

Oryx, Wingspan and ABA Birding,

I have some long series of the above magazines that I no longer require, and would be happy to donate to any institution or individual who could use them. Oryx runs from much of the 1990’s to date, ABA Birding from 1990-2005, and Wingspan for much of these timespans with odd issues missing. If you . . . → Read More: Oryx, Wingspan and ABA Birding,

Bustards

When we were living 135km east of Esperance, north of Cape Arid and west of Israelite Bay, we regularly used to see bustards in the paddocks. I am not surprised that they have been reported near Eyre Bird Observatory. Ann Millard

New charter boat for Sunshine Coast pelagics

We will be trialling a big new boat for pelagic birding trips off Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast. We will be able to take up to 23 people in what would be the largest and most comfortable boat doing pelagic birding charters in Queensland waters. The deal I have hammered out gives us 5 hours . . . → Read More: New charter boat for Sunshine Coast pelagics

Foot disease in Peewees

Hello Phillip,

Peewees sometimes get their feet entangled in twine, possibly as a result of trying to collect it as nest material.

If the twine becomes tight enough it eventually amputates their toes , or foot.

Following a post on the Facebook page about using the Ocker-Post tracking service to monitor the route a book took to travel all round Melbourne I have been doing the same on my volume. Its more fun t’han radio tracking shorebirds!! (And somewhat harder to explain.)
