Hi Judith

It's so good when a threatened bird returns to an area. But unfortunately there can be problems about too many birdos trampling around trying to find it - and there are still villains who collect eggs or birds, sometimes for sale overseas.

It's a bit of a balancing act between sharing our enjoyment and protecting the birds.

So please check with Birds Australia or BOCA, perhaps through their local branches, before letting ANYONE know about rare birds, particularly if they seem likely to be breeding.
