>From Tuesday 11 - Friday 14 April 1999 I'll be working at sites in the
Barmah Forest near Echuca in Victoria.  I need at least one volunteer to
help me collect foraging data on birds at 7 study sites in the forest.

The study being conducted by Ralph Mac Nally of Ecology/Biological
Sciences at Monash University, is looking at the significance of coarse
woody debris (CWD) for biodiversity in Murray River forests at Gunbower,
Barmah and Lower Ovens.

A.  Free transport from/to Melbourne or nearby to/from study site;
B.  My scintillating culinary offerings - also free; and
C.  Great riverine forest birds including Superb Parrots.

D.  You should be competent at identifying woodland birds, acoustically
& visually;
E.  You should be capable of periods of concentrated data collecting &
recording in the field (60 minutes of looking & writing at a time);
F.  You should be reasonably fit and up to spending about 3-4 nights
camped in the field.

If any of this describes you, or someone you know of, please contact me
as below - and ASAP!!
