Hi all,

Is anybody collecting information on errors in the new field guide??

I've found a couple of goodies so far:

Swift Parrot, listed as common. Should be listed as uncommon at the least,
given that it's endangered, with 2000(ish) birds left.
Powerful Owl, territory up to 1000 square km. That'd be 100,000 hectares,
just a tad more than the 1000-1200 ha in most of the literature.

There are also problems with several of the distribution maps.

If there is no particular person already collecting this stuff then I would
be happy to do so and forward it to the publishers. Email me at
