Hi all.

My wife and I have just returned from a tour to these islands organised by Birding Tours Australia which was ably led by Richard Baxter.

Bird highlights on Christmas Island were:
Yellow Bittern
Cinnamon Bittern
Pintail Snipe
Black Bittern
Malayan Night Heron
Java Sparrow
A mysterious unidentified cuckoo
The frigatebirds, boobies and the endemics were also a delight.

Bird highlights of Cocos Island were:
Eurasian Teal
Western Reef Egret
Saunders Tern
Asian Koel
Oriental Cuckoo
Green Junglefowl

Happy birding.
