Orange-bellied Parrot Survey dates announced
Winter surveys for Orange-bellied Parrots (OBPs) will be conducted on the mainland, King Island and north-west Tasmania in May, July, and September. Dates for 2019 are: 18-19 May, 27-28 July, and 14-15 September 2019.
Volunteers, through participation in winter search efforts, provide a significant contribution to the success of the OBP project. It is hoped that the existing band of intrepid OBP volunteers continue to assist in organised surveys, new volunteers present themselves and take-up the challenge to locate OBPs, and that all birdwatchers report any sightings of OBPs and other coastal Neophema parrots (Blue-winged and Elegant Parrots) from anywhere on the South Australian or Victorian coast.
