Visitors to the Gold Scrub area around Lake Samsonvale, out side of BNE may 
notice a whole heap of Red-backed Fairy-Wrens with a bit of jewelry.  Students 
from Cornell University in the US are conducting a long term project there and 
this season banded in excess of 250 individuals (all within a few hundred 
of the car park!).  They are only here in the Spring but have asked the local 
community to keep an eye out for banded birds when people visit over the 
winter.  They are particularly interested in any sightings of bright males 
during the winter, so if any are noted with jewelry, please drop me a line with 
band colour combinations.
