I can see that your wanted list includes a number of species that have been reported on Birding Aus / Birds Queensland / Eremea for your region. If observers don't have to be a TBO member, can't you use those reported observations?

Regards, Laurie.

Hi all

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

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.
