Hi All,

Heading to Broome at the end of Feb and will be staying at the observatory
for a few days.  Are there any areas I should visit away from the
observatory where I would need to hire a car?  Unsure of wether or not to
get a car to do some of my own exploring- are the tours they offer at the
observatory far reaching enough to give a good cross section of the local
birds (making it unnecessary to have my own vehicle)?

Also, I contemplated hiring a car anyway to drive up to Derby to explore-
are there any good places to stop at either on the way to, or in the
vicinity of Derby?  I was particularly keen to get a look at some of the
finches up there (like Gouldians, pictorellas, masks and long tails), great
bowerbirds, purple crowned fairy wrens etc., and any other good spots along
the way.  Given that it will be Feb, I assume it will be harder to find the
finches etc because of the wet season?

Thanks for the help,



Dejan Stojanovic
