I am a avid birder who lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas, USA, who 
will be traveling to Australia for the first time.

In September, I have an opportunity to visit Australia with my husband who will 
be coming on business. When he is busy each day, I am hoping to go out to local 
birding locations near Sydney and Brisbane while we are staying in those 
cities. I would welcome the opportunity to bird with local birders in Sydney 
September 15th, 16th, and the 19th if anyone is available to go out those days. 
We will be staying in the North Hyde district of Sydney.

In Brisbane, I am looking for a birding companion for Tuesday, September 23rd.

We will not be renting a car during these days since my husband will primarily 
be busy with work. I can utilize the public transportation system for meeting 
individuals, if that is necessary and a viable option. I am certainly open to 
paying for fuel and meals for anyone interested in going out for the day.

Please contact me at  if you are interested in showing me around 
your favorite spots for one of these days. Since practically everything except 
Rock Dove, House Sparrow, Cattle Egret, Barn Swallow, Mallard, and a few gulls, 
terns, and shorebirds will be lifers, you will have a captive audience. I am 
particularly interested in seeing parrots, kookaburras, wrens, and rainforest 
specialties while I am near the coastal regions. Anything uniquely Australian 
would be a pleasure to see.

Thanks and "g'day"...
