Birds

Overview

The Noosa Nature Map project is a new initiative to allow people to record sightings of different kinds of wildlife including birds. This enables better decisions for the conservation and preservation of our wildlife.

The birds have been listed in a number of categories. These are: Birds of prey, Nocturnal Birds, Parrots, Pigeons and Doves, Water birds, Cuckoos, Honeyeaters, Other - smaller than magpie and Other - magpie or larger.

This system avoids scientific classifications in order to create a simple and easy to understand system for beginners as well as experts.

By recording your sightings of birds you can add to our knowledge of the local birdlife, as well as learning for yourself about the natural world around us. If you don’t know the name of the species of bird you have photographed, our experts are happy to identify what you have seen. You will also be able to chat with other like-minded people about your experiences and observations. All sightings of birds are welcome, and we are especially interested in sightings of rare birds.

So you are invited to participate in this project and share your photos of the local birds. It is a good way to enjoy nature and be part of the new wave of citizen science.

Highly sensitive species

  • Species that are listed as threatened or listed as species of concern within the Noosa area of interest.
  • Species of particular concern and showing their distribution could indicate breeding sites.
  • Any photo can be shown on the site but the location will be hidden automatically irrespective of whether the picture is of a nesting bird or not.
  • The photo location will not be shown on the radar.

Sensitive species

  • Species that are listed as threatened or listed as species of concern within the Noosa area of interest. Note that some species maybe listed as threatened in QLD but not in other states / territories and vice versa.
  • Any photo can be shown on the site but the location will be hidden by the moderator if the picture is of a nesting bird.

Note: For all purposes there will be no difference in the treatment of records between sensitive and non-sensitive species. The moderator will consider all records to determine if the details of the location should be suppressed.
