Yesterday I collected a recently dead Yellow-faced Honeyeater (YFH) found on the footpath at the corner of Challis St and Cape Street , Dickson at 12:20 pm. Cause of death unknown.  Following Mark Clayton’s advice, I contacted Robert Palmer, Collections Manager at the Australian National Wildlife Collection (ANWC) which is located at the old CSIRO site at Gungahlin off Bellenden St, Mitchell.

Robert accepted the specimen a few hours later and, given the freshness of the specimen,  it was made into a skin for the ANWC collection yesterday afternoon.


COG’s webmaster, Julian Robinson, is in the final stages of preparing general guidelines for the COG website on what to do:   ‘If you find a dead bird which may be useful for science’, so look out for that information which he has advised me should be available soon on the new COG website.
