Beautiful Australian birds we have seen while traveling around this countryside

Updated on March 16, 2011

These are beautiful active little wrens

Birds of Australia

Bird watching can be a really entertaining way to while away the hours. It is fascinating to watch them, all have their own special ways of building their nests, using varieties of different materials to build them with.

While travelling from Perth across the Nullarbor then through South Australia to Victoria and NSW in Australia we have seen all of these beautiful birds.

Most have been spotted while camping along rivers or driving through the outskirts of towns or in the bush.

The large eagles at the bottom were seen north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. They are very strong and have very large muscley legs and claws enabling them to lift their captured prey. We watched a small dog playing cat and mouse with one and he lost out.

We have seen hundreds of other birds, too, but too numerous to mention them all, in fact some I dont even know the names of, which I will have to correct this as I get more time to research.

Take time to look around and enjoy lifes wonderful pleasures and forget the other problems in the world when you go out bird watching or looking at our flora and fauna
