Tracking a feathery tale - feather mapping
The humble feather has a story to tell and staff from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage are helping to tell it.
A new research project aims to build a ‘feather map’ to track waterbird movement around Australia. Volunteers have heeded the call and are now collecting feathers to be analysed by a team of scientists.
Citizen scientists are asked to collect moulted (or fallen) feathers from wetland sites. Birds are not to be caught or harassed.
