HANZAB updates

In 2014 the ABSA was granted permission, by BirdLife Australia, to extract the data and artwork from The Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds (HANZAB) to produce a new series of Bird in the Hand field information sheets. These will make available to field workers, and particularly bander trainees, data that are available in HANZAB, to age and sex many Australian bush birds.

New sheets will be added as they are compiled. Existing sheets will be updated from new published information, or from advice provided by users (by Email or through the Forum on this website).

BirdLife Australia also has also made available indexes for the HANZAB volumes.

The Australian Bird Feeding & Watering Study
The Australian Bird Feeding and Watering Study is a citizen science initiative being conducted by researchers at Deakin University and Griffith University. Our interests are the interactions people have with birds in their own backyards, as this can have a huge impact on bird diversity and abundance. One of the most common ways people interact with birds is through providing food and water. if you do either please get involved with this very important study
