Hi Birders,
Just a quick note to let people know that two spaces have become available on 
the 2018 Desert Parrot Expedition, 23rd May to 5th June.
This world-first tour targets four of the most exciting parrot species in 
Australian birding: Princess Parrot, Night Parrot, Naretha Bluebonnet and 
Scarlet-chested Parrot. Further information about the plan and booking 
information are available on my website at 
This will be a 14 day expedition through the Western and Southern Deserts- some 
of the outback’s most spectacular country. Accomodation will be scant, long 
days driving on rough roads will be the norm. The birds we are seeking are 
challenging but well worth the considerable effort involved. Needless to say 
its not just about the parrots- three grasswren species (Sandhill, Dusky and 
Thick-billed), up to four Quailthrush (Cinnamon, Copperbacked, Western and 
possibly Nullarbor) and many more outback birds are likely to be encountered on 
the way. Rainfall has been excellent throughout the region over the last year 
so the timing is looking really good.  
Naturally, given the high profile of the species, any tour targeting Night 
Parrot will come under considerable scrutiny. We have a comprehensive strategy 
in place to ensure that the welfare of the birds comes first and that all 
relevant legislation is complied with. Anyone with any valid concerns not met 
by reading the species account on the web link given above is encouraged to 
contact me directly to discuss in the first instance. 

Happy Birding Everyone!
