I recently spent 9 days in Perth and South Western WA ( Albany,
Cheynes Beach, Two Peoples Bay, Stirling Ranges, Perth area, Rottnest
Island etc) - my first and long desired trip to the area. I
attended the Australasian Ornithological Conference at the University
of WA which was most interesting and informative. Great to see and
hear of so much good research being done by so many on our native birds.
Saw just on 150 species all up - all the endemics except for two -
Western Whipbird ( oh so close but no cigar) and Blue-breasted Fairy-
wren. Some great birds seen including Crested Shrike-tit, Rock
Parrot, all three of the areas Black Cockatoos ( Red-tailed, Baudins
and Carnabys), Splendid Wren, Noisy Scrub bird, Western Bristlebird,
Elegant Parrot ( in good numbers), Rufous Treecreeper, Rufous
Fieldwren, Red-capped Parrot etc.
Will just have to go back for the two I dipped on! A great part of
Will be compiling a full birdlist soon - email me off list if anyone
would like a copy.
