Banding the Chestnut Quail-thrush

Chestnut Quail-thrushes Cinclosoma castanotum have been banded and retrapped over a period of 16 years in the course of an Area Survey on the Mount Mary Plains, 110 km north-east of Adelaide, South Australia. Habitat degradation has caused a decline in the numbers of the species. Results are presented showing some disparity in the sexes of the sample studies, and provide information on longevity and average weights. None of the quail-thrush species has been the subject of a published intensive study involving the marking, or banding, of a sample of a population.
