I've recently updated my rather archaic web page

to include a few more links, and a new section on surveying urban birds
around my home in Pascoe Vale South - a NW suburb of Melbourne (see
lat/long in sig block below!).  It's still archaic, but now a little

A couple of things ......

   * Can any of you recommend a non-commercial Tasmanian birding site
     that I can add to my links section (that excludes tour operators,
     venues, etc. and also things like the BA Raptor page which is based
     in Tassie)?
   * Is anyone interested in collaborating on a simple urban bird survey
     project with me?  See my page at to get
     the general idea.  I'm doing simple line transects of three street
     frontages around my home (adding up to about 1.6-1.8 hectares in
     18-22 minutes), with the intention of doing that 2-3 times a
     month.  It doesn't take long, will produce a snapshot of the
     avifauna of my (or your) suburb for later publication, and of
     course will slot nicely into the BA Atlas, as it conforms
     reasonably well to the 20 minute/2 hectare survey.
