Dear birders,

There has been some discussion recently about Apostlebirds in South
Australia - or a lack thereof.

Just what is the status of the species in SA?

I have done extensive birdwatching throughout the Murray Mallee and Mid
North districts of this state and the only time I have seen Apostlebirds
was in 1984 just east of Peterborough (32 55S 138 55E).

The nearest other sightings were at Hattah Kulkyne NP in Victoria where
they are common - especially in the camping ground where you almost step on
them as you move around your camp site.

Happy birding,
Trevor Hampel
