Hello Robert,

I haven't seen any replies to you so far.

As a member of Birds Queensland you should have a copy of the <Birds Queensland
Directory>.  If you have missed out please contact Peter Crow.  On Page 1.11 of 
Directory you will find the Birds Queensland "Code of Conduct".  This is an
excellent distillation of the collective experience of many ethical birders.  I
highly recommedn it.

The "Code of Conduct" in The Directory is followed on Page 1.12 with "Excursion 
Campout Code".

Also, in the Birds Queensland library I have several pages photocopied from 
It" the Newsletter of the American Birding Association, Inc. Volume 8, No. 3 
1996).  This contains an article called "The New ABA Code of Ethics: The Last
Draft."  This Code was carefully scrutinised by the Birds Queensland Council 
finalising our own Code of Conduct.  The ABA Code is followed by a discussion.  
you contact me privately I shall photocopy the 4 pages and post them to you.  
my scanner is not hooked up at present).

Birds Queensland Librarian.
