This beautiful, bright and energetic little bird was elected Australia’s favourite bird in a recent poll run by Birdlife Australia. I got to see them in the wild for the first time during a recent trip to Tasmania, then again in Outback Queensland.
I am also proud to say I have seen most of the birds that were nominated in the wild at some point or another since I have been living in Australia. These are the birds I have seen, hopefully I will complete the list soon! After all, they were ALL special enough to have been nominated! How many have YOU seen?
