HBOC’s main vehicle for members to report the results from their bird-study projects is the journal The Whistler which is published approximately 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 the current members of HBOC receive a free hard copy. 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 every issue below.
Below are links to each issue of The Whistler. From the link you will find a downloadable copy of that entire issue. Most likely you will also find downloadable copies of the individual articles in the issue. This is a new feature that we are implementing and which will take some time to complete. If you cannot find an article as a stand-alone version, it is available by downloading the complete issue.
Volume 13 (this is the current issue)
