Annual Bird Report 2015-10-13T12:20:53+00:00

In about October each year, HBOC produces a report detailing the bird records for the Hunter Region in the preceding year. All current members of HBOC receive a free copy which is also made available to many local and some national conservation-focussed organisation. Copies (hard or soft copy) are also available for sale.

The Bird Reports each year are based on records from more than 100 individuals and organisations. Records are vetted by a Records Appraisal Committee, consisting of experts from HBOC, prior to publication.
Information in the publication will be of interest to:

  • Consultants seeking information concerning rare, threatened or endangered species in the Hunter Region, or any other species of interest
  • Researchers in ornithology, natural history, environmental studies
