How many Birdwatching Tourists (or potential
are there ?
Would the number of the 3 Field Guides and even
Readers Digest CBOAB sold (say in the
last 10 years)
give any sort of indication to the number of
are interested in birds ?
One would have to guess
-how many were gifted and never
-how many are duplicates (one in the car,one at
-how many are replacements for those that fall to
-how many birdo's own the lot.
-how many replace an earlier edition.
Could the final number be potential
Birdwatching Tourists ?
Has anyone ever tried to assess how many persons
members of a Ornithological, Birdwatching,
or Field Naturalists
Club, Institute, Union etc.in Oz.
Again the number would have to be reduced
because of dual or more memberships
Are there any other pointers ?
e.g. How many people visit Bird Sanctuary's such as
Qld's Currumbin ?
