A Guide to Bird Habitats in New South Wales
R.M. Cooper & I.A.W. McAllan

guide-bird-habitats

This publication endeavours to facilitate our aims by providing a means for people to better identify and appreciate the habitats of birds. This, in turn, should enable us to achieve the goal of linking bird distribution and habitat preferences while, at the same time, we hope it will help to conserve habitats and the birds and other animals associated with those habitats.

An Ornithological Gazetteer of New South Wales
and the Australian Capital Territory and adjacent waters
Ian A.W. McAllan

nsw-act-gazetter

This gazetteer provides a listing of every ten-minute grid-block (10′ latitude x 10′ longitude, = grid) for the area of coverage by the NSW Bird Atlas, that is, the State of New South Wales including offshore islands, reefs and seamounts east to 160° East longitude, and thus the Australian Capital Territory. Each grid is here given a unique name, allowing for better cross-referencing between the coordinates of the grid. This helps to overcome incomplete note taking in the field and so allow later identification of transcription errors made by those entering data into their notebooks, or onto record sheets or computer. In this sense it is beyond the scope of a typical ornithological gazetteer as it is an attempt to standardise reference points in the State as well as giving an even spread of locality names.
