A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

Tracking the regent honeyeater in southeast Australia

April 2015 saw the 4th, and largest release of captive bred Regent Honeyeaters (Anthochaera Phrygia) into Chiltern Mt-Pilot National Park, VIC, Australia, and the start of the first field season of my PhD. The captive breeding and release of these birds is a huge collaborative project between BirdLife AustraliaTaronga Zoo and The Victorian Government Department of Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

I recently wrote a blog about my first season working with these beautiful birds and you can read it here.
