Thanks for assembling these Sandra.  Without opening the links, it seems to me 7 are of the doomsday variety, and 2 relate to the harmless whimsy of the BoY project which reveals more about the voters than the favoured birds.  The one on stopping birds hitting windows seems useful, but it does not seem news that a curtain OUTSIDE the window will help stop birds flying into the window.  I can see low-tech versions of that idea being quite effective.

quite a few news stories this week have caught my interest.. . The links give an idea of content of each.

The Macquarie Marshes is a RAMSAR site, so the fires there are quite catastrophic for birds.  

This article mentions the proposed development at Lake Wollumboola
