Hi there Robert,
                       The latest Pizzey and Knight has it that the RBF was
established in the Darling Range from aviary escapes c. 1960.
However, if you really want to know may I suggest you ring Perry de Rebeira,
who lives just down the road in Glen Forrest and is a veritable mine of
information on the W.A. birding scene.  Perry's phone number is 08 9298
