Erika, the sites that Laura is working on are on private property and behind locked gates. I can show you a spot in Belconnen one evening that is open to the public and virtually guaranteed to produce. If interested contact me via email to make an arrangement.

Hi Erika


might know where there is a Superb.  She is in the throes of putting cameras on nest hollows and satellite trackers on the birds.

Hello again!


Thank you to everyone for the tips! 


So far, no luck with the superbs at the AIS. Either they're not here, or I'm just unlucky (probably the latter, especially as my binoculars are in Perth!). 


I'm going to be working at the ANU tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be able to find some gang-gangs there. 


Thanks again!

Some of you may recognise my name from several years ago. Long story short, I moved to WA to do my phd on red-tailed black-cockatoos, but I return to Canberra occasionally to visit family. This is one such occasion. 


I'm really keen to find some gang-gangs and superb parrots if possible while I'm here. Is anyone able to give me some good tips on reliable spots for them? 


I realise that the superbs might be a bit of a stretch. I know they used to hang out at the AIS occasionally, but I'm not sure if that is still the case. 


Any tips would be very welcome! 


Thank you!
