A few records to the growing list of recent Flock Bronzewing sightings:-

  18/08/13   45km North of Marree on Birdsville Track - 6x drinking at the
bore at 8.30 am (towards the  south and west of the range indicated in most
Aus Fieldguides and HANZAB) 

  19/08/13   20km North of Mungerannie  on Birdsville Track - 2x flushed
from side of road at 10.00 am

  21/08/13  8km East of Moomba on Strzelecki Track - 13 x flyover at 8.30 am


Perhaps an interesting study project  for a University student or other
interested person would be "The fall and (apparent) rise of Flock Bronzewing
in Australia" . Their fall, including their eruptive and dispersive nature,
is partly covered in HANZAB which indicates:-

.        millions at Bedourie in 1924 

.        50,000 SE of Bedourie  in 1972  

.        secure in 1972 but previously thought close to extinction
