Hi everyone,

Amazing to see the numbers of Swift parrots in NE Victoria at 
the moment.  Before anyone hails a miraculous recovery of the 
population, I must add that very few, and often no Swift 
Parrots are at their 1998 haunts in the Bendigo or Maryborough 
areas.  The amazing thing about box-ironbark forests is their 
great variability in flowering, and this variation is responded 
to in the distribution of the parrots.

I will be away until the 14th, looking for Swift parrots on the 
western slopes and collecting habitat data.  If there are 
queries regarding the surveys, please call 03 5430 4444 to 
leave a message with reception or 54304357 to leave a message 
with my voicemail.  I will ring reception every few days to 
check for messages.
