The Canberra Ornithologists Group is pleased to be organising the BA Campout to be held from Wednesday 6^th to Saturday 9^th April 2011. The Campout will be based at the Bush Heritage Australia property '_Scottsdale <>_' located off the Monaro Highway 83 km from Canberra and four km north of the township of Bredbo, NSW. There will be no Birds Australia Congress held in conjunction with the Campout in 2011.

The timing of the autumn campout has been arranged to coincide with the annual honeyeater migration. In addition to the spectacular number of Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters, many other bird species of interest are involved in the passage out of the Brindabella Ranges. Apart from observing the passage many other activities will be arranged which may include tours of Scottsdale, and outings to Namadgi National Park, Tallaganda State Forest, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and the Tinderry Nature Reserve. Opportunities will be provided to become involved in bird surveying for the Kosciusko to Coast (K2C) project on the Saturday morning.

For those intending to spend the weekend in Canberra at the end of the Campout local outings will be provided which may involve visits to the Australian National Botanic Gardens, Jerrabomberra Wetlands, Mulligan's Flat Sanctuary and the International Arboretum,.

For registration, bird lists and additional information log onto the Canberra Ornithologists Group website (_ Follow the link to 'BA Campout' which will be regularly updated with additional information.
