Wildlife

A list of the birds and animals I’ve seen around the place, with links to my posts about them.

The birds are usually identified and named only thanks to a great book by Jim Flegg and N. Longmore, Reader’s Digest photographic field guide to the birds of Australia, Surry Hills, NSW: Reader’s Digest, 1994. For everything else, I’ve likely had to stumble around the internet.
