1The terms "resident", "occasional" , "frequent visitor" refer to the original Survey Site and Period. This list builds on information gathered in a Survey for the Birds Australia National Atlas and Cumberland Atlas (which contributes to the National Atlas but records more information). The Survey was of the 2 hectare site which included the Federal Park Wetlands, and was bounded by Johnston Creek Canal, the Crescent, and [light rail] overpass on Rozelle Bay. The site was surveyed for 20 minutes each survey period, originally every season, but then every month over a few years before 2006.
