Jerry Olsen is looking for raptor photographs for a new book on diurnal
raptors of the ACT.  What he is looking for and other information about the
project appear below.  The photos will need to be of good publishable
quality.  If you can help plse email direct to Jerry.  Emails should be less

It would be good if you request photos via the chatline. Any shots of
diurnals doing things - hunting, eating, mating, carrying sticks, hovering
or landing, particularly with the alula showing, fighting with enemies
(conspecifics, ravens, magpies) and I probably don't have many shots of the
2 harriers, sea-eagles, or grey gos doing anything.

Last time (Owls) CSIRO was good about accurately attributing photographic
credits, and I would insist on doing the same this time. We need to say that
the culling process has to be brutal because editors don't like some that I
do, and we can only include a limited number of shots. For my own shots, it
is about 1 shot out of 100. I'll need to have these finalised by mid-July.

One thing to be considered:  I could ask through the chatline for such snaps
- of good quality and showing interesting behaviour.  I'm sure there are
lots out there.  I'd say payment not available but would be acknowledged.
Let me know if you want me to do that.


As I've finished a first draft of this next book, I'll be looking for photos
of ACT diurnals, some of which I'll turn to black and white to scatter
through the text, as in Owls. If you have some, or know people willing to
contribute, let me know, preferably of birds exhibiting some behaviour. If
there's not enough from the ACT, I'll turn to NSW, then Vic and Qld.
