Dear COG Team,
I have a question about some birds I saw this morning. I was riding my bike along Northbourne Ave today and spotted two galahs at the side of the road. I thougt I saw some numbers on the side of their wings and indeed when I stopped and went back, I saw that both birds had round tags wired to both of their wings. They were round, approx 2-3cm diameter and had letters on them: BX and TO. I assume they are part of some tracking survey. What's the story there and is it helpful to report these sightings to you?

I hope you all had a good Christmas.
Silke Smaglinski
