Hi,I've been following the reports of swift parrots coming in from the mainland 
and would ask anyone that sees swift parrots to please check the birds for leg 
bands. I've been researching swift parrots in their Tasmanian breeding range 
for the last two years and there should be quite a few banded swift parrots 
getting around. If you note a leg band on a bird, please let me know where you 
found it, whether it was foraging or not (and the tree species it was using) 
and if possible, a photograph of the bird/band would be great. The leg bands 
are pretty small, so don't worry if you can't discern the numbers, but please 
report the sighting nonetheless (my contact information is in my email 
You can find more information about my research at:
