PLEASE! If you see any mistakes, I'm 100% sure that I have wrongly identified some birds.
So please let me know on my guestbook at the bottom of the page

Below is my bird checklist from my visit to Australia. Below the Australian bird check list there are pictures of each bird in alphabetical order. I was going to Australia to look for kangaroos and Birdlife Australiakoalas, but of course, there were plenty beautiful birds.

During my time in Australia I have had a great help from Birdlife Australia to identify some of the birds that I have seen. And it drove me crazy not been able to identify the birds and I spent many hour trying.
