Hello Tom,

Generally speaking your point is a good one, but in this particular case I don't think that there is any cause for concern.

In the wild Golden-shouldered Parrots are very restricted in range and numbers- the area involved is very well known. In captivity they are becoming a fairly common aviary bird. There are far more GSP in captivity than in the wild. I think they are an unlikely poaching target.

Hi John,
Congratulations on your success in North Qld but can you try to be a bit less specific with your locations, a couple of years ago I spoke to a Qld detective working with the EPA who informed me that they are aware of 'bird-smugglers' who watch Birding-Aus for this kind of information.

    Hi all,
    Just back from a trip to Cape York, Atherton Tablelands and Mt. Isa
    I was looking for 5 life birds, and scored four out of five.
    I picked up a flock of 10 Golden-shouldered Parrots, including at
    least 1 magnificent adult male, with the help of Susie from
    Artemis Downs.
