It was brought to my attention that I tend to go birdwatching alot. So here is my attempt to document my outings and sightings. I also hope to show photos of as many of my ticks as possible.

Goulburn River NP...again

Another quick trip out to this glorious spot with the aim of getting Plum-headed Finches on the Hunter year list. The fog was thick for most of the morning, not lifting until 10:30am, so birding was slow until then.At O'Brien's Crossing we easily found 10-15 Plum-heads feeding along side Double-bars, Zebras and Red-brows. Deeper into the NP we found an Emu, 3 Black-chinned Honeyeaters, Diamond Firetails, Peaceful Dove, Brown Treecreeper, Speckled Warbler, White-eared Honeyeater, Jacky Winter, 2 Chestnut-rumped Heathwren, and White-browed Babbler.
We once again dipped on Spotted Harrier and Red-winged Parrot.
