|| Allen F. C. Lashmar
A 13 year study of Silvereye populations on Kangaroo Island provides an insight into
the dispersal patterns of Silvereyes in the S.A. region. Only nine confirmed movements of
birds between Kangaroo Island and the mainland of S.A. were recorded even though retrap
data clearly indicates a movement of birds away from the banding site in winter and spring.
The Sllvereyes that were resident on Kangaroo Island are not distinguishable from the S.A.
mainland birds in terms of morphometrics or plumage. Only two "Tasmanian" plumage
birds were captured on Kangaroo Island during the course of the study.
