Hey, hey, my, my, how the feathers
It is disappointing to me
also that birding-aus is losing its point. The volume of postings has
become unwieldy through the lack of restraint by a small number of
birders. In particular, it means that you must unsubscribe when travelling
for even a few days, or else return to find a crowded mailbox.
Correspondingly, I probably often miss a few gems among the
overburden. At the risk of being a wet blanket, I
implore anyone posting more than twice a week regularly to find more appropriate
outlets. Please form your own mailing lists of 10 or 20 for topics not
related directly to birding.
Let's focus on the fact that birding in its strictest sense is
primarily about finding birds. Accordingly,
birding-aus seems a misnomer to me unless it applies principally to finding
birds in Australia, or overseas with an Australian perspective.
Birding tip for the week: Having just returned from Musgrave,
Iron Range and Lakefield, I can report that roads up Cape York Peninsula are
starting to get tricky after heavy storms. Any plans to go there should be
