Thanks - for those who do not know this site it is and enables one to contact willing birders in other countries (or other parts of Aus). I have just been on a "business" trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong and with the aid of two Birding pals in those countries managed to get 47 "lifers" whislt still doing some work!

Hi David (Torr) and AUS Birders,
Please allow me to offer a word of praise for the Birding Pal program. 
My wife and I recently visited Australia for the first time.  With the aid of four Pals we were able to observe 282 species of birds from WTP to Kakadu NP, NT, most of them lifers for us, in about three weeks.  I recorded about 5,000 digital TIFF images,  400 or so of which will be posted to for everyone to enjoy.
I can't tell you how much our association with our Birding Pals enhanced our enjoyment of your glorious country; you are not only dedicated, knowledgeable birders but also very effective good-will ambassadors.
With gratitude,
Robert Hawkins
