As Pauline Hanson said, Excuse me! Please explain?How does four bands, (two on each leg) help an endangered bird like a Regent Honeyeater to survive?
What is the actual mortality rate (collateral damage)from banding birds? Cannon netting waders must really be good for them. It must help them get balance on their short quick flight to Siberia. Or is it protective armour for them when they fly through the hunting grounds of Asia.
Am I missing something? I suppose if banding helps birds, then when the Night Parrot is found, we can expect a culling program that will really excite em!

There are two things that I think need to be mentioned. The first is that there is accommodation in the valley that can be procured for less than $55 a night and, in my humble opinion far superior to that mentioned by Edwin. The people offering this accommodation also activelyassist with the recovery effort for the Regent Honeyeater in the valley and,again in my humble opinion, should be rewarded all things being equal (and as I have said, they come out ahead anyway!).The colour-banded Regent that Edwin saw was probably banded by myself in thevalley this spring. Unfortunately the details received are incomplete. Could people seeing colour-banded Regents p[lease bear in mind that thereshould be two bands on each leg. A colour-band and a metal (silver) band onone leg and two colour bands on the other. It is important to note which legs the bands are on and which colour is above the other. I am happy, however, to receive all colour combinations regardless of whether they are complete or not. Edwin, I would like details of the Satin Flycatcher, if possible, as there are rare in the valley. Thanks to Judie Peet for sending this message to me, currently off birding-aus while currently engaged in field work in the Capertee Valley.
