Hi there,

I am performing a study of the sex ratio bias and the breeding system of the 
brown songlark for my honours project (Melbourne University),based on the 
extreme sexual dimorphism found in these birds. The birds seem to be 
returning late to the southern areas of Australia where they typically nest, 
eg. Deniliquin, Hay and Swan Hill due to the severe drought conditions, and I 
am concerned they may already be breeding elsewhere in Australia. It is vital 
to the success of this project to have access to a high density of nesting 
birds and their hatchlings. 

I am looking for any information on the migration of the songlarks, the 
current location of the birds, and where they have begun nesting in 
Australia. If you have any information which you feel would help me, I would 
appreciate hearing from you,


Rebecca McIntosh.
