A large part of its critical habitat will be burnt. (Editor: This article was originally submitted as a comment. The subject is so important we promoted it to an article and we recommend the Birdlife Australia site it gives a link to for the bird. The site is brilliantly written and illustrated, engrossing and informative on birds and 'fire-management' problems, although it is more diplomatic than this article, which pulls no punches. Readers of candobetter.net will know that there are a lot of people who aren't too impressed with state government fuel management programs. See similar pages on bushfires (http://candobetter.net/?q=taxonomy/term/917) and on black cockatoos (http://candobetter.net/?q=taxonomy/term/1207). These birds are wonders of nature, personalities in their own right, and incomparably beautiful. How could anyone allow them to perish?)
