Does anybody out there know specific locations where
one can find relatively high densities of the
AUSTRALIAN REED WARBLER (Acrocephalus australis),
CHESTNUT-BREASTED FINCH (Lonchura castaneothorax),
RED-BROWED FIRETAIL (Neochmia temporalis), or
SILVEREYE (Zosterops lateralis) in southeastern QLD or
northeastern NSW during the winter??

I am a grad student in the states and am preparing to
do some field work in June and July. As part of a
thesis project, I am studying blood parasites and the
evolution of immunity in several Australian species
and related populations in other Pacific islands. I've
consulted several field guides and atlases but would
love to hear from someone who's been out in the field
(thanks to those of you who may have already answered
a similar request). I would be especially interested
to know if anybody is currently mist-netting these
species and whether you might be willing to
collaborate (allow me to take blood samples and
perhaps hold some individuals overnight for an immune
assay - permit applications are in the works).

Thanks for any info you might have.
