I fly into Townsville on April 28th. to do 2
weeks volunteer work at an Aboriginal School. All this is a very new adventure for me.
While Townsville I am sure I will have spare time to do some
birding, again I would be delighted to receive any tips
After Townsville I am going to Cairns and go on a tour with
I think I may hire a car and drive to Cairns, there are
probably 100’s of birding spots on the way but I would appreciate a few tips.
I had the pleasure of taking a Canadian birder, in Melbourne
for the Environmental Conference, to Anakie Gorge, north of Geelong, to join in
with Margaret Cameron’s group. It
was a great learning experience.
Margaret & Chris. had incredible hearing and could identify birds
long before they appeared. I have
come to birding late in life and seem not to have very much ‘free’ memory to remember calls but am working on
that. Learning to listen in the
bush is essential.
