Tim Dolby asks about a possible 'epicentre' of distribution for the
Red-whiskered Bulbul in Victoria.

I've just checked the distribution map for this species in the Atlas of
Victorian Wildlife and it indicates the following:

- there are curently 37 records of the species for Victoria.  All but one from
suburban Melbourne.
- the species was regularly reported from the Melbourne Botanic Gardens until
1982 but there have been few records since 1983.
- there have been reports of probable escapees from aviaries (eg. Traralgon).
- records of the species were made during all seasons and no breeding has been

The distribution map has an 'epicentre of distribution' of around Heidelberg-Box

A bird I'd like to see.  Let us know if you see any, Melbourne birdos!
