Hi Sydney Birders - we need your help!!!

From December 2000 until August 2001 (at this stage), 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.

There are still some vacancies for those people interested to survey a number of sites for one day per month.  If you are interested, please contact me at the below address
