Hi Pat

I'm certainly interested in suburban birds. We're just at the end of a Garden
Bird Survey organised through the Qld Ornithological Society Inc, which follows
one held exactly 20 years ago. 
It will be interesting to see if the data support the many differences we 
subjectively feel have happened to the avifauna. I'll keep you posted.
