South-west Endemics Birding Tour 2020 – 7 Days

1 December 2020 - 8 December 2020

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 Scrubbird, Western Bristlebird and Western Whipbird). In the karri forests country we’ll look for Western Rosella, White breasted Robin, Red-capped Parrot, Western Whistler and Western Corella; while exploring the dry woodlands we should add Malleefowl, Shy Heathwren and Purple-gaped Honeyeater. Long-billed (Baudin’s) and Short-billed (Carnaby’s) Black Cockatoo, Rufous Treecreeper, Western Yellow Robin, Gilbert’s Honeyeater, Red-winged and Blue-breasted Fairy-wren await us on this trip. Coastal birding is not forgotten with seabirds, a visit to a Bridled Tern colony and Rock Parrot, Red-eared Firetail and Western Fieldwren; we expect to see up to 150 species including all 14 endemics.
