Thanks for the update Russell. Spent 4 hours this afternoon at the site with 
some other enthusiastic observers and was eventually rewarded with presumably 
the same 4 birds flying in, circling about then heading off. A special 
experience particularly for those seeing this near-mythical species for the 
first time.Is not birdwatchers that's threatening the survival of the OBP but a 
combination of climate, habitat loss and dwindling genetic stocks that are of 
most concern. Proper management of remaining sites should and mostly still does 
allow birds to utilise the environment and for people to enjoy and study them 
from a vantage point that hopefully does not impede their movement or damage 
habitat.Am not convinced that suppressing information on species such 
Orange-bellied Parrot (and Night Parrot) actually improves their chances of 
survival. Perhaps more creative management and education strategies could 
include, enthuse and more successfully raise the profile and support for th
 ese critically endangered creatures.
