from 18.11.07 to 06.01.08 I'll be birding in Australia, start in Sydney, go to 
Darwin, do the way Townsville to Cairns, fly to Iron Range and finish in 
Brisbane. Now I've some questions, maybe anybody of you can help me:

1) I took a look in the book Thomas & Thomas to look for site descriptions, can 
anybody confirm, that most of the site decriptions (especially for the national 
parks and othe "big" sites) are still reliable? I can imagine, that probably 
the descriptions for some small pools etc. won't still work.

2) I heard that in Sydney is a reliable landbased site to see Little Blue 
Penguin all around the year, can you describe how to find the site and at which 
time of the day I can see the birds there? My most southernly point will be 
Wollongong, so this seems to be the only chance to get the penguin.

3) What do you think is the most essential way to see most of the birdspecies, 
that occuar up to the range of Sydney and NOT further north, e.g. Superb 
Lyrebird, Gang Gang Cockatoo, Pilot bird etc.? Is it good to start with the 
Royal NP? What's another good site near Sydney?

4) Can I get actual and reliable sites for Owls and other nightbirds?

5) Does anybody know, if the site description in Thomas & Thomas is still good 
enough to find the specialities in Iron Range? or are there other good sites 
near Lockhart River Airport?

Hope that anybody can help me with these and maybe some more questions, thanks 
a lot in advance,

Martin Gottschling
