Hi all

So far this Spring, 301 species have been reported within a 250 km radius of 

This has bettered our final Winter total of 298 species, but is way short of 
the 350 target I set at the start of Spring.  I'm sure, with your cooperation, 
we can still give it a real shake though with 15 days of Spring still 
remaining.   All we need is 49 of the 137 species on the wanted list (further 
below) to be reported with date (approximate if unsure) and location. 

Please note it's not necessary to be a Toowoomba Bird Observers member.  If you 
prefer not to register and post
directly to the TBO forum, then please email me your sightings and I'll
post them on your behalf.   Anywhere between Ballina NSW and Inskip Point QLD, 
and inland to Miles,
Westmar and Goondiwindi is in the area. If you'd like a map showing the exact 
boundary, please email me off-line.
