Grey Falcon Study - Request
for Sight Reports
This Australia-wide study of one of our rarest endemic birds aims to increase
our knowledge of the elusive and little understood Grey Falcon. The emphases
of the project are the size of the total population, population trends,
and to identify possible threats. On that basis it will be possible to
assess the conservation status of the species and to suggest conservation
strategies. Due to the difficulties to find the birds this project is
impossible without the help of many people kindly reporting their sightings;
please refer to the link provided. Thank you all for your much appreciated
Australasian Raptor Association
The Australasian Raptor Association was established in 1979 to promote
the study, conservation and management of diurnal and nocturnal birds
of prey (raptors) throughout Australasia.
The region extends east and south-east from Wallace's Line, and from the
south-eastern portion of Asia, and encompasses approximately the south-western
quadrant of the Pacific. It includes Australia, New Zealand and the islands
of the South West Pacific.
We are a specialist group of Birds
Australia, and have a close association with a number of government
departments and research institutions throughout the region.
Australasian Wader Studies Group (AWSG)
The AWSG was formed in 1981 to coordinate and focus studies on

in the families Charadriidae and Scolopacidae, as well as the
stone-curlews, snipes, pratincoles, oystercatchers, stilts, avocets
and the Plains-wanderer.
Queensland Wader Study Group

Study Group is a special interest group of the Queensland Ornithological
Society Inc., with the object to promote and participate in the study
