Good point Michael.  A recent article in the The Age noted 
that the Latter Day Saints homepage has a million 
(1,000,000!) 'hits' a day - mainly by genealogists. 

I assume the reason that the birding.aus homepage is not 
visited more regularly is because the birding.aus 
listserve is the central focus.

As you mention, it does have excellent resources, for 
example I often use the archive as a reference source. I 
wonder how it compares with comparable web sites in 
Australia - such as the Birds Australia homepage - and is 
this reflective the popularity of bird watching?
