The History of Birding NSW 1970- 2020


The first part of this history recorded the Club’s beginnings in 1970 and its  progress to 2000. This was published as Volume 32 No. 2 of Australian Birds (the Journal of the NSWFOC) in 2000. Tom Karplus (the current President in 2020) suggested that a further segment of the club’s history up to 2020 be written as part of the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the club. The two sections were combined and published as a Supplementary Newsletter No. 311 in May 2022.
