Australia has about 800 species of bird, ranging from the tiny 8 cm Weebill to the huge, flightless Emu. In most gardens around Australia you will find an abundance of birds visiting flowers, singing in trees and sometime building nests. Many people are keen bird watchers and photographers. Come along and join this project to display the wonderful world of Birds.

    An even poorer photo than the ones used for the sighting at my own property but still enough for a record. Only recorded once previously in the Park.

    Not the best shots but just so happy to finally be able to record these. Only seen twice on the property before, both times were about 6 years ago and withing a week of each other. This year there's been quite a number of them hanging around for the past week although they tend to be staying up in the canopy.
