The Birders page


I set myself the challenge to spot 300 species on the trip using my camera and the Pizzey & Knight Birds of Australia book as a field guide to identify them. As an amateur I am trying to take photos to help with the identification, though it proved much harder to get good quality photos with my lenses! Apologies but only a handful of photos because I didn’t get enough good ones (that would require a trip of its own).

The tally in alphabetical order below was 324. We saw and heard heaps more, just couldn’t positively identify them and have left them off the list. I might need to structure this page better for readability but for now here is a raw version :
