Hi Birders - we need your help!!!
From December 2000 until August 2001 (with a possible further time period), Birds Australia has been commissioned to assess the impacts of landscape modification associated with the redevelopment of Homebush Bay on the composition and abundance of terrestrial and wetland bird communities in the area.  The current project will involve monthly surveys of all bird species  at 41 sites across the Millennium Parklands, Sydney Olympic Park, Bicentennial Park, Mason Park, and Hen & Chicken Bay at Homebush Bay.
The survey design for the project is based on the Birds Australia 'Atlas of Australian Birds Project' and will involve surveyors searching a 2 hectare survey plot for a 20-minute period, recording the composition and abundance of all bird species.  Extra surveying will include surveys targeting shorebird species at a number of key locations on the Parramatta River.
Those interested would need to spare only couple of hours for one day per month to survey a number of selected sites across Homebush Bay.  Those of you interested should contact me at the details listed below.
