Dear colleagues


Just a reminder that for all sorts of reasons, particularly conservation purposes, all interesting and/of significant sightings should be recorded.  So please report any superb parrot or regent honeyeater (or Whiskered Terns and so on and so forth) either by a COG Observation Sheet handed in at COG meetings, or



Of course the preferred method of observation is the standard Atlas 20 minute survey, but all significant sightings should be recorded as incidental observations at least.

A friend in Fraser has Superb Parrots on Mt Rogers.  The question about breeding is interesting.

You may have heard already (?), but you might want to let the birding world
know that this morning as I started my run there were a small flock of 6 - 8
superbs on the ground feeding just behind Avery place and on the
second lap they were on the ground on the Daley Cres side of the Wickens
Place car park.

They are early - must be nesting up here this year?
