Can anyone please help me out with some info on Central
Victoria. Our home turf is Adelaide, and we are greatly looking
forward to our first birding trip into Victoria in late June. We will be
staying several nights at each of Geelong, Healesville, Chiltern and
Bendigo. Specifically looking for info on local specialties,
particularly Orange Bellied Parrot, Swift Parrot, Turquoise Parrot, Regent H/E,
Powerful Owl, and dare I ask, Helmeted H/E. We are experienced birdos and
always enjoy being out in the bush, whether we only see the regulars, or are
lucky enough to get a lifer.
If anyone on the list has local knowledge of birding spots etc., I'd
appreciate some ideas. We have a 4WD so difficult access spots will be
considered. If you know the area I'd like to hear from you.
in advance, and I promise a very BRIEF trip report with an appropriate subject
