Could I say I big "Thank You" to Chris Tzaros, Chris Coleborn, the
Cooks, Mike Hunter & others for the excellent, detailed reports
coming in from northern Victoria lately?
I probably shouldn't single out a group of reports like this - but
I've only been up to this area a couple of times, and I'm really
aching to get up there again to see such fantastic birds. For anyone
who hasn't been there it really is one of the best places to go
birding, and this seems to be the time to see it. It's not just the
great birds, but there is something quintessentially Australian about
this area, apart from the obvious point that other countries don't
have Mallee. What else is it about this are that makes it such a
great place to visit? I like the look of it, the smell of it, the
sounds (of course) and I suppose the sense of space. Would anyone
else like to suggest why this is really one of the best places on the
planet to visit?
And to everyone else sending in great reports from OTHER places -
thank you as well - we are really accumulating a fantastic resource
of birding information. Hopefully the closing stages of the atlas
will be an extra incentive to get everybody out amongst the birds as
much as possible. Good luck!
