Comments Off on Impacts of Bird Watching on Communities and Species: Long-term and Short-term Responses in Rainforest and Eucalypt Habitats

Overseas studies on the activities associated with bird watching have shown significant impacts on birds in numerous important ways. This report is the first comprehensive study of the impacts of bird watching on birds undertaken in Australia. The structure of avian communities and the disturbance distances of selected species in sites within both rainforest and eucalypt habitats in southeast Queensland were studied. Specifically, this report sought to quantify the influence of different levels of disturbance.
