Thanks Sandra,
I saw the Birds of box-gum grassy woodlands -DVD last night. Nice to see its existence. It is a static slide show with bird calls of each one and basic text information. I think the calls are the best part, mostly clear and a good selection from most species (sadly no screams from the Barking Owl). It would be a good supplement for a good book. I think the 4 habitat use groupings and the overall sequencing is odd and of limited use for the average beginner. I think maybe grouping by size or going from very little to big birds and similar ones together would have been more useful to help people identify them. The odd thing is that for almost all species there is just one photo, and of the most dimorphic species (many of them), in almost every case just an adult male is shown. Although I didn't count, the few species that have more than one photo are mostly those in which there is little benefit in more than one.
I think I'll give it back to you to give to someone else.

And as well as Bruce's myna conference DVD giveaway, I also have some DVDs to give away. I've been provided with a limited number of copies of the DVD mentioned in the subject line, which was developed for NSW landholders in the eastern sheep belt, to help them identify bird species and their habitat requirements. 

The raffle tonight will be a copy of Sue Taylor's Best 100 Birdwatching Sites in Australia.
