Re Online Ornithology Course

When you say `proper`, I assume you mean higher qualifications like diplomas or degrees? Then, the Charles Sturt Uni course is your course.

However, some excellent courses are offered online by the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. Some are for beginners, some for more advanced learners. Some are free, others require payment. Some are very general while others are very specific to North America. There`s a free sample lesson or activity with most courses. Some courses offer a certificate that says you`ve completed the course.

Almost all are self-paced. I`ve done two and they`re great.

Hi Birders

Could anyone recommend a proper ornithology course that can be undertaken
online and is credible?

I know of one through Charles Sturt Uni, so any other would be helpful.

Many thanks
Regards

It was very distressing to read Barney Enders Post re the poisoning of 136
Wedge-tailed Eagles
One would like to think that in 2018 after extensive Public education over
many years that all rational thinking Human beings would have been educated
enough to understand that these birds although capable of attacking live
animals eg lambs just do not do so, and if so one extremely rare occasions
I know I am speaking to the converted on this forum, But all i ask is that
those of us who are passionate about the conservation of Wedge-tailed
eagles will contact our local MPs , ministers for the environment etc when
cases like this occur, and also follow up the cases to see if the
perpetrators get the right penalty applied.
Although the State Gov Environment Departments clearly indicate that these
birds are protected by Law and severe penalties apply for wilfully killing
them, there is not a lot of obvious educational information disseminated on
the reasons why these protective laws are in place, and why we are trying
to conserve our native wildlife.

always optimistically

Hi Akis,
That is the only one and it is very credible. I have completed some units from it.

Hi birders

I just resigned from Birdlife Australia after being a member for ~40 years!
I’ll be signing off from Birding-Aus as well (but I’ll still take a peep in
the archives from time to time). Thanks to all here who have contributed
(positively or negatively) to any matters I raised here over the years.

Birds will always be in my blood and I can’t help but notice them wherever
I am, but they just aren’t foremost in my hobby or professional worlds any
more, and I haven’t been actively involved in any ornithological
organisation’s activities in years.

Go well, and good birding!

cheerio …

[And for any of you saying “who the hell is this guy anyhow?”, that
illustrates my point about how inactive I’ve been in the last decade or
two. :-) ]

Hello I recently observed a Papuan Frogmouth swimming on the Daintree River
North Queensland
and I was interested if anyone else has observed this behaviour. It was an
intentional swim and easy exit. Thank you . David.

I have one more assignment for the Certificate and have found the course everything I had hoped for. No walk in the park however!

Kind regards,
Anne

G?day David

Was the frogmouth swimming or just having a birdbath? The Noisy Miners bathe in my backyard pool – they sit on the fence, plop in and fly back to the fence [and repeat several times].

Was the frogmouth hopping in and out of the water, floating in the water or propelling itself through the water?

Regards, Laurie.
