Peter, Great to have a birdo visiting one of the Orange-bellied Parrot 
sites in Bass Strait.

Peter Menkhorst (OBP Recovery Team, Victoria) has advised me to pass the 
following onto you.

* Sea Elephant Inlet
Try the southern shore but be aware that as there is a large area of 
saltmarsh OBPs could occur over any part of this.  It is a very open and 
flat area so you will need to be vigilant of disturbing birds well ahead 
of you.  If you recognise the distinctive call this will certainly help.

* Orange-bellied Parrot sightings
All observations of Orange-bellied Parrots should be immediately forwarded 
to Chris Tzaros at Birds Australia 415 Riversdale Rd., East Hawthorn 3123 
(9882 2622)

Chris is the OBP Winter Project Officer and would be interested to receive 
your observations.

Good luck and let us know how you go.
