Do you live in eastern Melbourne and love seeing woodland birds in your local 
parks and reserves?

If so, you might like to volunteer some of your time to help understand the 
threats that our increasing urban areas have on woodland birds. I am a PhD 
student at Deakin University in Burwood, currently looking for keen-eyed 
volunteers to help me explore the effects of urbanisation on Eastern Yellow 

I have colour-banded robins in Wilson Reserve, Ivanhoe; Shepherds Bush, Glen 
Waverley; and in the Dandenong Ranges National Park, near Olinda and Selby. I 
am trying to understand if home-range and territory sizes differ in the 'urban' 
reserves, compared to the 'forest' locations. I am looking for help with 
re-sightings of the banded birds.

More detailed information can be found at:

If you are interested in helping out, please contact me at 
 or on 0403 195 663.
