    Tony, not sure if you got the email from Ken or if anyone else has contacted you, but Bowerbird is shutting down and most of us are moving to iNaturalist. This, and other records you have posted after late December 2017, will be lost unless they are transferred over. See: http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/126665
