The same decline is seen here.

With the poison invasion creeping up our valleys we are seeing a sharp decline in birds here too.

As we hand weed the roadsides here ( to prevent random herbicide use) beneath camphor trees we witness the varied bird activity in the trees. From white headed pigeons to the robust black cockatoo, its sad to see large areas of the tree now being poisoned. Adapted and robust, the camphor laurel tree has filled a huge niche for birds, insects and even the severely threatened Koala after Europeans  removed their original habitat.
