The endangered Swift Parrot (Lathamus discolor) is declining throughout its range in the south-eastern Australia and habitat loss and fragmentation is the most likely cause. The ability of land managers to respond to this decline is severely hampered by lack of knowledge about swift parrot movements and population ecology. How changes to habitat availability and quality have impacted on the populations of Swift Parrots has not been measured. My research will look at key demographic indicators to assess the viability of populations of these birds. I will also investigate how the distribution of resources across the landscape influences the movements of these birds to better understand why Swift Parrots move, where they go and how they get there.
