Good afternoon,

I am seeking your help to locate reliable populations of breeding rainbow bee-eaters (and routes of migrating birds if possible) in the ACT (preferably) and local region to conduct a long-term study on their migration. Work in the Canberra region will provide an important foundation for a broader study which will examine migratory connectivity and migration patterns in rainbow bee-eaters across their range in eastern Australia and Torres Strait.

My broader study will use intrinsic markers such as DNA and stable isotopes to compare and contrast patterns of migration and population structure in bee-eaters.

Also, I am keen to receive observational records of bee-eater movements (i.e., when and where bee-eaters are first arriving and are leaving) for the ACT.

Many thanks
