All observations of marked birds can be sent to the Australian Bird and 
Bat Banding Scheme.  All studies involving the marking of birds MUST be 
registered through this organisation.  The postal address of the ABBBS is 
P.O. Box 8, Canberra ACT 2602.  Alternatively e-mail 

I am continually surprised that people are not aware of what is happening 
on the research front.  I can only assume that many people on this list 
are NOT members of Birds Australia.  Most researchers go to great lengths 
to ensure that people likely to encounter their marked animals are aware

For the record, I am the person to forward all sightings of Regent 
Honeyeaters, banded or not.
