It looks as if in June of this year, I will have the opportunity to travel (with some birding-tolerant colleagues) across the deserts from Newman to Laverton to Warburton to Uluru. I have tried some Google searches, but I have not found much about birding sites or special birds to watch out for along that route, except for a few short site lists on the Eremaea Birds site. I realize that much of the route is through Aboriginal lands and side trips will be impossible, but I'm sure there will be some special birding opportunities. I have birded in Australia four times before, including the Pilbara and around Uluru and Alice Springs, but I'm still missing some of the common western desert bird species and plenty of the rare ones! Thanks in advance for any trip notes or site bird lists that may help me take full birding advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
