Every home is a habitat accessible for birdwatching during lockdown.
Could COG reach out to those seeking purpose and activities ideas whilst in lockdown?
And give our neighbours challenges as they Covid exercise through the streets or watch from windows.
How about a COG member from each suburb making a list of the birds most commonly seen in that suburb?
List the species as one-liners in size order.
If needed plumage colours and maybe a distinguishing feature or comment.
Scientific name for accurate online searching.
Add notes about the avian characteristics we take for granted. and give our neighbours challenges as they Covid exercise
through the streets or watch from windows.
Print and post the list on a pole close to the path for passers-by to photograph or make copies available.
Galah 35-38 Grey & Pink Flynn ovals are hotspots Hollow Cacatua roseicapilla
Crimson Rosella 32-37 Greenish as juveniles Hollow Platycercus elegans elegans
Red Wattlebird 32-36 Mottled beige-brown Over assertive Anthochaera carunculata
