Next week I will be visiting the Cape Crawford area (west of
Borroloola) in the Northern Territory
I hope time permits me to visit the CGw
locations and compare that habitat to that where the bird is regularly seen at
the McNamara's Road site 60km NW of Mount Isa.
Denise Goodfellow in her book "Birds of Australia's Top End,
2001" wrote p102 "there are no recent
I also have not heard (on the grapevine) of any recent CGw
sightings in that area.
I would appreciate any references to Newsletters that have
references to sightings.
e.g..g. The Bird Observer, No.692, Nov 1989, p116-117, Fred
The Bird Observer,
No.712, Sep 1991, p89, Jean Skinner
I would also be pleased to receive the dates &
details of ANY sightings in that area
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
ps I can email a History of the CGw in the NT (it
includes references to skins collected)
+ a Bibliography of the CGW to anyone
