I saw your post and was a little alarmed by your offer to share site
information in the Border Ranges.


I have had numerous requests for details of sites for scrubbird and
bristlebird in this area and I don't hesitate to politely decline. Many
years ago I found several scrubbird territories at Gloucester Tops and
happily shared that information. These days those poor birds are harassed
endlessly by playback.


The bristlebird is especially sensitive with only a handful remaining in
northern NSW. Frankly, none of us should be using playback to see the
species in the critically endangered south-east Queensland-north-east NSW
population, let alone sharing site information.


People generally are understanding about these matters.
