There is certainly some evidence, which will be referred to in HANZAB Vol.4
when it is published next year, that CBCs have increased in recent years in
places in SE Queensland and in New South Wales, and thought to be a
consequence of increases in host species: Australian Magpies, Torresian
Crows and Pied Currawongs.

Cheers,  Hugo.
