Brief Overview of Trip
For birders and naturalists, Australia has much to offer.  
Australia has over 775 species of birds, and 340 of these
are endemics with over 200 endemics cost effective to find
for most bird watchers.  Besides the endemics, the trip
offers good looks at numerous other bird species.  

With the leadership of the Australian biologist, Dr. Tonia
Cochran, eight lucky birders will have a chance to bird and
enjoy wildlife in Southern Australian natural areas.  We will
visit several habitats from mountain to coastline and have
a chance at many of Australia’s endemic bird (about 100)
and mammal species (around 30).

Some of the endemics we should see: Albert's Lyrebird,
Green Catbird, Regent Bowerbird, Forty-spotted
Pardalote, three honeyeaters endemic to Tasmania, and
Tasmanian Native Hen.  In addition we will see a selection
of Australia’s many marsupials plus the koala, kangaroo
and a scarce wallabies.  Of course, we will expect to see
the endangered Tasmanian Devil. Even widely distributed
birds like Short-tailed Shearwater and Little Penguin will
likely be seen.  

As this trip includes O'Reilly's and Kangaroo Island, this
trip will surely be a trip of the life time.
