Bird Survey in the Quirindi Creek Catchment, NSW


Following the success of the Birds Australia Liverpool Plains Woodland Bird Project, bird surveys will be undertaken at Quirindi this weekend. 


Why a survey?

The Quirindi Creek Catchment Committee is embarking on an extensive program of riparian (creek line) revegetation and protection.  One of the core actions of the program is to fence sections of riparian areas to promote the re-establishment of endemic reed, grass, shrub and tree species.  Bird species are valuable indicators of ecosystem health, and these surveys will be important in collecting baseline data.


Survey locations?

The survey will occur at designated points in the Quirindi Creek Catchment which lies to the east of the Quirindi township.  Surveyors will be required to conduct Atlas surveys (2-hectare Area Search) at a number of locations along the Creek.



Saturday 18th May, 2002, from 7am  (workshop/bird outing Sunday 19th May, 2002)



Any interested birdwatchers and/or naturalists.



Transport can be arranged for those travelling from Sydney or Newcastle.
