As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

DAVID MARK: A Canadian researcher is trying to find out why one of Australia's rarest birds is on the decline.

Amanda Edworthy is spending her summer climbing trees on Tasmania's Bruny Island, south of Hobart, to unlock the secrets of the Spotted Pardalote.

She's discovered local possums are reaching into nest boxes and eating the birds.

Felicity Ogilvie reports from Bruny Island.
