We are also looking for a publishable photo of a FEMALE Pink Robin for the project described below. This is something that turns up at the ANBG every couple
of years (maybe one there right now), so we’d be grateful if local photographers had a look in their holdings for a good one.

Subject: [canberrabirds] Photos for bird book F Pink Robin
You might have heard Neil Hermes is producing a new book on Canberra birds – or rather, slightly more broadly, ‘high country birds’. The increased scope calls
for a few extra species to be included. For this project we are still looking for publishable photos of the below species.
No payment is available, but contributors will be acknowledged and receive a copy of the book. If you think you can help, photos can be sent to me or to Neil
Please let me know if you have questions about the specific publishing requirements.
