Going, going, gone ...

aka DDDs (Departure Date Determinations). When migrants return, we delight in claiming the "First for the season". So why is it that we don't place equal emphasis on claiming the "Last for the season"? Well we all know why. It's too darn hard. Unless we religiously keep a diary of our sightings and then compare notes in the off-season to determine whose was the last sighting, how would we do it? Well now I think I know: provide another avenue for some one-up-manship on a public forum! If you've bettered the last date, please set the record straight ...

Summer target: 250 species BEYOND club survey area

Why should the locals have all the fun? To give those of you who don't live in the Toowoomba area an incentive to report your sightings and strut your stuff, here's a challenge especially for you! 250 species collectively in a season. The survey area we'll make anywhere within 250 km of Toowoomba, but excluding the TBO survey area. I've set a higher, but very fair target as well. See how you go. Locals can help with the 'outside' tally too and vice versa. Looking forward to some new names on the forum!

Council Bushland & Recreational Parks

Toowoomba City Council's various bushland parks are a haven for many species of birds. These parks include Redwood, Jubilee, Nielsen, Duggan, Glen Lomond and Echo Valley South along the escarpment which members regularly visit. The TCC and the wider community need to be made fully aware of the significant biodiversity - and not just birds- within these parks so that they are managed appropriately. Please make your visits count by posting your observations here ...
