South-west Endemics Birding Tours 2019 – 7 Days
3 December 2019 - 10 December 2019
The south-west corner of Western Australia is one of the most bird-rich areas in the country. Our 7 day, 7 night fully accommodated tour begins and ends in Perth (WA) and takes in a range of habitats including wetlands, open woodlands, sandy heathlands, the Stirling Ranges and tall karri forest. This is a very pleasant area to be birding in with mild weather, good infrastructure yet a sense of adventure remains.
The tour aims to find all 14 of the South West endemics, including the 3 notorious “skulkers” (Noisy Scrub-bird, Western Bristlebird and Western Whipbird). In the karri forests country we’ll look for Western Rosella, White-breasted Robin, Redcapped Parrot, Western Whistler) and Western Corella; while exploring the dry woodlands we should add Malleefowl, Shy Heathwren and Purple-gaped Honeyeater.
