SWIFT PARROT SURVEY 2011 - Birders are reminded that the autumn survey for Swift Parrots is occurring on the 21-22 May. With a spate of recent sightings in the Canberra region, it would be great if people could visit likely haunts to check for this species. Liklely haunts might constitute sites where they have occurred previously, areas of eucalypt flowering or areas of lerp infestation. Outside of the ACT but within 'striking distance' for many birders is the south west slopes region of NSW and also the south coast. It would be greatly appreciated if these areas could be covered over the survey weekend or at any time over the autumn-winter. On the slopes, areas of Grey Box, White Box and Mugga Ironbark habitat are best focussed on, especially ironbark as it is currently flowering well. On the coast, I'm unaware of the current conditions but swifties often use mixed Spotted Gum-Ironbark forests around the Bateman's Bay, Moruya, Narooma areas and these sites would be well worth checking. For more information, to register your interest in participating and to report sightings, please contact Chris Tzaros at Birds Australia -
