After our successful 2017 tour as a result of the recent splits of some of Australia’s western specialties, Bellbird Birding Tours is offering its second Western Specialties and Splits Tour. Starting in and returning to Adelaide, this tour will cover much of South Australia’s West Coast and Eyre Peninsula and even venture over the Western Australian border. This tour is a fast-paced trip as we’ll cover up to 4000 km in seven days. Focusing on the main targets of Copperback and Nullarbor Quail-thrush and Naretha Blue Bonnet, we will also be looking for Western Whipbird, Western Grass- wren, and the Star of the West: ”Chuckles”, the lost but comfortable in its new home Laughing Gull. Other species we will target will include Blue-breasted Fairywren, Western Yellow Robin, Rufous Treecreeper, Rock Parrot and the western subspecies of Gilberts Whistler and Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo.
Another not-to be missed aspect of this tour will be a visit to the Head of the Bight, to witness the amazing assembly of Southern Right Wales for their birthing season.
We’ll be running this tour only once this year, during the Austral winter, generally a great time to go birding in this part of the world. There are only limited seats so be quick…!
