Faeces were obtained from six known roost sites and 18 individuals captured in mist nets between October and December 1986 at Mt Missam, Morobe province, Papua New Guinea. Both stomach flushing and faecal analysis techniques showed Coleoptera to be the dominant prey item. No vertebrate remains were found.
Observations of the Palm Cockatoo Probosciger aterrimus made between August 1983 and January 1986 in the Iron Range and Bamaga areas, Cape York Peninsula are reported. These are subsequent to those reported in an earlier communication (Wood 1984, Corella 8: 94-95).
Between 1962 and 1976, 1 910 Pied Currawongs were banded at Timbertop in north-eastern Victoria. The number of individuals retrapped was 332 (17.4%). The longest elapsed time between banding and recovery was 14 years and 1 .7 per cent of birds were known to be alive over ten years after banding. The mean annual survival […]
Sexual, age, seasonal, population and subspecific differences in the morphology of the Brown Goshawk Accipiter fasciatus are described on the basis of data derived from birds captured near Macclesfield, Victoria, and from museum specimens. The physical characteristics of this species are also considered in the context of the genus Accipiter.
