I was delighted to see some of my favourite birds featured including the Wedge-tailed Eagle, Blue Wren Pardalote and the Black Cockatoos.
We have recorded for the past few years when the Black Cockatoos visit Baynton.
I feel privileged to have a Wedge-tailed Eagles eyrie on our property (I know not everyone feels the same way). This is only one of several bird books currently in stock.
