Our Birds

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.
