HBOC’s main vehicle for members to report the results from their bird-study projects is the journal The Whistler which is published annually. Copies of The Whistler are made available to natural history libraries around the world and to selected conservation-focussed organisations in Australia. For each issue, all current members of HBOC are eligible to receive a free hard copy on request. We encourage members and non members to submit articles relating in some way to birds of the Hunter Region. Instructions to Authors are provided as a separate pdf below and are also at the back of most issues.
Below are links to each issue of The Whistler. From the link you will find a downloadable copy of that entire issue and you also will find downloadable copies of the individual articles in that issue. Articles for the current issue are added as soon as they become available for publishing. Obviously there is no downloadable copy of the entire current issue yet available (because articles for it are still being prepared).
Volume 14 (this is the current issue)
