I really enjoy photographing the Birds of Western Australia, they are difficult to capture but well worth the effort when you capture that good photo.

Almost 550 species of birds are known to habitat in Western Australia. 17 of these species are only found in Western Australia in the wild. Some of these are Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo, Western Corella, Western Rosella, Western Thornbill and the Western Wattlebird.
Many of these birds are difficult to photograph, especially as some are low in numbers. With much clearing of old growth forests that removes old and hollow trees for nesting helps to stop them from breeding. The presence of feral cats and foxes is also another reason for these beautiful birds to be reduced in numbers.
