In the recent correspondence on Jabiru,
(1) No one has said much about the (South American) Jabiru. For me, it is a
very impressive bird, and easily seen in the Pantanal area of Brasil.- an
area quote - "declared by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve and a Natural
Patrimony of Mankind, the Pantanal is the world's largest wetland area with
an area of approximately 200,000 square kilometers". From my experience
(100+ overseas trips), Pantanal is, at the right time of the year, one of
the best birding areas anywhere in the world.
(2) In the very early 1970s, I occasionally saw (Australian) Jabiru on the
Brisbane River, Brisbane Qld , near where I then lived in Chelmer. I
suspect they have long gone but would be delighted to learn that they are
still there. Are there any recent records?
