Greetings. Our list now has around 230 members and generally continues to function well, thanks to all subscribers including especially those who make regular contributions.

From time to time I send to the list a reminder about the list rules. We keep these to a minimum, but they remain important if we are to all benefit from and enjoy the list. Here are the list rules.

Messages sent to the CanberraBirds email list should not
* be of a purely commercial nature
* contain offensive or inappropriate language
* contain personal attacks - discuss the message, not the messenger
* stray too far from our main topics: the wild birds of the Canberra/ACT region, their habitat & conservation.

Messages, including attachments, should be under 100 kb in size. This is because some of our subscribers are still on dial-up connections to the internet. Geoffrey Dabb has prepared some useful guidelines for ensuring that photos sent to the list are small enough that the total email size is under 100 kb. His advice is on the list archive at .

If you have any comments on this, pls respond to me directly rather than to the whole list.

Good birding!
