New Western Splits & Specialties

As a result of the recent splits of some of Australia’s western specialties, Bellbird Birding Tours has developed its Western Specialties and Splits Tour. We have run this tour succesfully 5 times now since 2017. 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 White-bellied Whipbird, Copperback and Nullarbor Quail-thrush, Naretha Blue Bonnet, Western Grasswren and Spotted Scrubwren, we will also be looking for other good species including Blue-breasted Fairywren, Western Yellow Robin, Rufous Treecreeper, Rock Parrot and the local subspecies of Gilberts Whistler and Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo. We may also be lucky enough to come across a Scarlet-chested Parrot. Use the buttons below to contact us or download the brochure!

Another not-to be missed aspect of this tour will be a visit to the Head of the Bight, where Southern Right Wales congregrate during May-Sept.

Due to demand after another successful tour, we’ll be running this tour twice a year. We will have a departure during the Austral spring, generally a great time to go birding in this part of the world, plus our usual autumn departure. There are only limited seats so be quick…!
