And so to Queensland - and it's still pretty chilly, but no rain for the last few days. Our journey to Roma has included excellent botanic gardens, new lifer birds for us - including red-shouldered parrots - and just loving those wide open spaces!
It was a long but enjoyable drive from Leeton through Forbes, Parkes, Dubbo and then on to Coonabarabran...the Newell Highway is not in the best shape, to be honest, with many worn parts, only exacerbated by heavy truck use. But all was forgiven when we got to Coonabarabran and found the Warrumbungles...
Just back from our national capital
Last week we decided to make a short trip to the Canberra area, familiarising ourselves with the birding areas (we're pretty new to birding, and keen to explore). Having seen splendid ganggangs in Glenrowan, we sallied north to see what the ACT had to offer. Of course, the season was not optimal, but we think there are at least four places we will revisit in spring (with some of the gorgeous rosellas we found - we never get tired of them).
