 i have just joined the mailing list and would like to say a hello  to fellow keen birders. My family and i have just moved over to Canberra from the ACT from Perth and i must say we are throughly enjoying spring here in the capital. Birdwatching has been a hobby of ours for quite some time and we are  enjoying getting to know the Canberra enviroment and bird life. Our welcome to Canberra was heightened by a visit from a Crested Shrike Tit the day we moved into our new premises back in May !!
Two weeks ago we rescued a very immature white faced heron chick from the shores of Lake Ginniderra at the peninsula area no adults birds or nests nearby and  a very real risk of dogs finding it. It's now at the RSPCA.
Also have noticed red browed finches nesting in the same area, regularly collecting building material.
