Welcome to AussieBirdLife.

The moment I stepped foot in Australia I was blown away by the wildlife, especially the birds.  Very different from what I was used to in the UK and so much to discover.  So this is my blog about my adventure learning about birds in Australia.

It won’t be a definitive ornithological guide as I’m no expert.  Hopefully, though, it will allow others to share in the magic of seeing birds for the first time.  Those readers who
already know their stuff can perhaps share their knowledge, fill in the gaps and even correct me if I get it wrong – after all, I’m learning as I go along.

I’ll do my best to get some pictures to share and hopefully my skills with a camera will improve as I go along. And maybe I’ll sometimes feature some other wildlife too.

And for those who searched for ‘Aussie Birds’ or ‘Aussie Chicks’, sorry ….

    Aren’t we all? If I spot her ‘Hanging Around’ here I’ll be sure to post a few shots – and I’ll tell her you say ‘Hi’.

    Thanks. I love looking at blogs from around the world. It’s a great way to learn about wildlife that I may never get to see myself.

    Excellent blog Sue. You have found some beautiful aussies and your photographs are brilliant. I’m an aussie living overseas and I’m always wanting to see pictures of my birds back home. Thank you for sharing these pictures and may you always find happy birds in oz. Russell.

    Thanks Russell. I keep wondering when the novelty will wear off or the rate of new birds appearing will slow, but it hasn’t happened yet. Still love it!

    Hi Sue,

    Just stumbled upon your blog. You’re showing some terrific photos here, really impressive. Love to hear some favourite birding spots – I haven’t been into birding specifically but would like to know more 🙂

    Kind regards,

    Hi Maurice. A trip to Penguin Island would be great during the next few weeks as the penguins are on the island to moult at the moment. The terns are still feeding their chicks on the West of the island. There were also a few Caspian terns still there. Herdsman Lake, Joondalup Lake and Yanchep lake are also well worth a visit.
