Thanks to those who replied with information on locality/regional field
guides to assist the Queensland Ornithological Society to build up its
library collection. I have provided here a list of (shortened) titles so
far suggested. Our travelling members will benefit greatly by having access
to a good selection of these. Further suggestions/additions to the list are
welcome. Publication details, price and availability would also be most
welcome if known. An * marks those already in our library. As you can see
we have a fair way to go.
