Australian birds are unique and I love to go out to see them in my local area in the west of Melbourne. I visit relatively few local spots so I get to know which birds I’m likely to see where and at what times of year. Some of my photos are taken at quite a distance so please forgive a bit of blur!
I’ve shown a few here and you can also visit my portfolio pages here.
I serve on the board of BirdLife Australia so I can contribute to the protection of our rare and endangered species.
There are two books that are invaluable to birdwatchers in Australia:
I’d love to hear about the birds in your area so feel free to share your images and comments.
