COUNTING OUR BIRDS,  a Wings on King project running since 2015, we are still interested to hear of your sightings. The King Island Green Rosella and the King Island Black Currawong may be becoming extinct. They are both subspecies of Tasmanian native species that live only on King Island. They exist nowhere else in the world.

Counting birds on Your Place – Garden, Orchard or Farmland But these focus areas aren’t the only areas that are important. The more people we have counting across the island the better. So it would be great if YOU can help us by checking in your own gardens, orchards or properties. The best time to check is in the morning, but anytime will do. Then send the KINRMG the results.

WHAT: we NEED to KNOW:

How many Currawongs and/or Green Rosellas are there at one time

When you saw them – Day and time

Where you saw them: GPS co-ordinates (Most smart phones have a GPS built into them) or the address with the nearest cross road.
