If anyone would like a reason to spend a weekend in the Riverina, NSW NPWS and Greening Australia are holding a Superb Parrot Census along the Murrumbidgee River around Darlington Point. I’ve attached the flyer, but due to a slight loss in quality to fit the requirements of the chatline, I have copied the relevant details here.



Annual count of Superb Parrots along the Murrumbidgee River

The annual census is back and we need your help! Come along for a morning of bird watching in beautiful surrounds and help us to understand the size of the population of Superb Parrots along the middle reaches of the Murrumbidgee River.



Participants will learn about the breeding, feeding and lifespan of Superb Parrots and be invited to monitor their spring breeding distribution. Previous bird watching experience is useful but not essential, guidance and instructions will be provided on the day. Please bring along a comfortable chair, clip board, water bottle, snacks, hat, sturdy shoes and binoculars (if you have them). Participants will be invited to survey at nominated locations along the river, then return to debrief and enjoy a complimentary lunch.


Sunday 17th November

7:45-12:00 followed by lunch

Meet: Lion’s Park, corner of Darlington St and Bridge St, Darlington Point.


RSVP: by 14 November
