Published: 04 August 2021
...Harry F. Recher ABSTRACT In Australia’s eucalypt forests and woodlands, co-habiting birds differ in the foraging manoeuvres or methods used to search for and take prey, the substrates and plants on which prey are found, and the heights at which foraging takes place. On the Southern Tablelands...

...Garry Daly ABSTRACT Aubrey Elliott (1910–1943), a passionate ‘bird-man’, lived in the suburb of Tapitallee on the south coast of New South Wales until 1940. During that period he and his brother, Arthur kept notes on the birds in the local area and devised a hide that was mounted on a utility...

...Michael Guppy; Anthony Overs; Sarah Guppy ABSTRACT The details of a breeding season have been investigated and described for many bird species and groups of species, but rarely for an entire breeding community. The collection of such data is the only way of quantifying the number of birds a habitat...

...Michael J. Murphy ABSTRACT The majority of studies into the response of birds to logging in Australian forests has been done in forest-dominated landscapes or relatively large forest blocks, where the surrounding landscape can ameliorate impacts. This is the first study to examine the response...

...Claire Runge; Ayesha I.T. Tulloch ABSTRACT Nomadic birds move around the landscape in complex, irregular patterns, making it difficult for conservation managers and planners to decide where and how to act to mitigate threatening processes. Because of this uncertainty, nomadic species are poorly...

...Harry F. Recher In this paper, I present data on the foraging behaviour of eucalypt forest and woodland birds at two sites on the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales during the non-breeding season (winter). The winter community was a subset of the summer community, with six guilds among 23...

..., there was less vegetative growth, and nectar production declined. As habitats became drier, fewer birds nested, although some bred and fledged young. Ground, shrub, and canopy foragers, including migrants, along with nectar-feeders declined in abundance. The numbers of raptors and cuckoos declined in line...

Drought is likely to have further suppressed many animal populations. Here we report on changes in woodland bird...

.... We conclude that the data are consistent with the hypothesis that the Gouldian Finch suffered a major population decline in the Kimberley area in the late 1970s. We also discuss a range of “sustainable conservation” issues related to the harvest of wild birds for the avicultural trade and suggest...
