Hi Birders,
Over the past two months, surveys for Rufous Scrub-birds have been undertaken at a frantic pace in four National Parks in north-east NSW.  Following the success of these surveys, there is only one survey remaining (this survey has been re-scheduled after cancellation due to fire risk).  This survey will occur on the 12th and 13th of January 2003.  We had great success with our recent surveys conducted on 27th and 28th at Barrington Tops, with 14 Rufous Scrub-birds being recorded.  The recent rainfall, cooler temperatures and increased humidity across the survey area has led to favourable conditions for Scrub-birds.
If you are interested in assisting with these surveys, please see the information below and contact me ASAP.
