hello Kathryn,

it's great to see you guys organising some nice survey work down there on King 

if I may please suggest that whomever leads the survey team in the SW part of 
the island, especially around the heath/ti-tree habitat at the Calcified Forest 
walk, to keep their ears & eyes open for Beautiful Firetails.

in 09/02/2013, myself and Simon Mustoe heard two birds calling from within 5 
metres away along the track that leads down from the carpark.

we didn't see them, but we didn't need to, to know what they were...

good luck!!

cheers for now,

martin cachard

Hello All Bird Conservationists:

'Wings on King’ will be running surveys of shared sites on the 27-28th April, 
King Island, with orientation and group formation on the evening of Thursday 
26th. This is an important project, monitoring the birds of King Island with 
repeated surveys over 50 Shared Sites with all data being entered into Birdata. 
 We are always short of experienced birders, particularly with Tasmanian bird 
experiences who are willing to lead small survey groups and help teach locals 
how to bird.  Registrations for Autumn Surveys are now open and we would love 
to see you here.  But you do need to book accomodation and flights well before 
time so if you are interested, get onto it now.

On the Saturday evening after a casual dinner, there will be a showing of the 
new documentary ’The "Desperate Plight of the Orange Bellied Parrot” made by 
David Neilsen and Snowgum Films. This will be followed by a Forum with an 
expert panel to discuss conservation of our King Island endemic species and how 
we can achieve this.  You may not be aware that the next most likely bird 
extinction in Australia is the King Island Brown Thornbill, but 3 of our other 
9 subspecies are also listed as endangered including the King Island Scrubtit 
that is Critically Endangered. So we have some very real and difficult issues 
to manage here, with very few people on the ground to do it, so we do need help 
from other bird lovers - please.

For more information or to register go to 
Birds Of King Island (B.O.K.I.) Birdwatching and 
King Island, one of Australia's top 5 birdwatching destinations and best kept 
secrets. An experience of a lifetime.
