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.

    This little gem of a bird is a welcome sight as he arrives for his annual residency in our forest.
