Hi All!

I have an enquiry about red-browed finches in WA (not about Poms!).

Perhaps someone out there (esp. Frank O'Connor or Allan Burbidge?) can tell
me when and how the red-browed finch was introduced into the Darling Ranges
around Perth, Western Australia. I have a friend who lives in Kalamunda who
frequently gets them in his garden, and we were wondering how long the
population has been established, and what its viability/range is?

Can anyone help with this enquiry?


Robert Davis.
