One of the major features of Australia’s birds is that they are nomadic and respond, sometimes dramatically, to the presence or absence of rain. The country is enormous (just a little smaller than the lower 48 of the USA), complex, and a handful of its habitats and inhabitants can be a little challenging.
Australia, together with neighbouring New Guinea, has been isolated for more than 60 million years and as a consequence has evolved an astonishingly distinctive and remarkable fauna and flora. Australia’s birdlife has followed a similar evolutionary path and now boasts more than 340 endemic species, more than any other country in the world.
Come join me and explore this wonderful country. The only thing you need to worry about is that once you are here, you won’t want to leave!
