I was having a look through birdsindanger.net today, and was surprised to
see Coxen's Fig Parrot listed as Endangered (
I had been under the impression that they were at least Critically
Endangered, if not already extinct? I did a bit of digging and found a few
BA posts, including one about a nest which was found/collected in 2008?
Post 2008, I couldn't find anything else detailing actual records, however
it seems there must still be a population and sightings being made
somewhere by the recovery team - the border region or Bundaberg I assume?
Anyway, myself, Max Breckenridge and Ashwin Rudder are intending to spend
schoolies week after the HSC birding the border region of NSW, and I was
wondering, is there actually a chance of seeing a Coxen's anywhere? I for
one would jump at the chance to help out with a survey, or at least know
where the suitable areas for these birds are/were, just to keep any eye out?
