Birding Adventures in North Queensland and Cairns, Australia
A presentation by Madeleine Brown and Kathy Criddle
Last October, Kathy and Madeleine went to North Queensland, Australia seeking adventure, birds and coral reefs. October is Spring in Australia. They found Friarbirds, Frogmouths, and Willie Wagtails sitting on nests and plenty of other birds displaying and strutting breeding plumage or defending nest sites. Cairns, Australia located on the coast next to rich tidal mudflats is just down the hill from the renowned Atherton Tablelands, home to an Important Bird Area and the Wet Tropics Heritage Area. Cairns, pronounced like "cans", is also a gateway city to the Great Barrier Reef. Join Madeleine and Kathy as they share the birds they found on their three part adventure!
