Painted Honeyeaters are a threatened species in Victoria and on the list 
of threatened taxa under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee (FFG) Act.  A FFG 
Action Statement has been compiled to address the conservation of this 
species in the state.

Interested list members can contact me directly for FFG material on the 
species (which I'm happy to send or indicate our web site address).

The observer will be forwarding the observations to the Atlas of Victorian 
Wildlife (AVW).  I encourage all birdos to report sightings of threatened 
species to the Atlas or myself and I'll pass on to AVW staff.

cheers, Martin
