Hi birders,
Yesterday while walking the lady Carrington Drive in Royal National Park (just south of Sydney) I observed a male lyrebird that had a small "purse" attached to its chest. This appeared to be man made, about 25 mm long, 15 mm deep and 8 mm deep coloured white. It flapped around as the bird scratched and fed but did not appear to impede it in any way.
Is this a tracking device? If not does anyone know what it is and why it is on the bird. If it is can anyone provide information on the research project with which it is involved
