Australia is a fantastic birding destination, with tropical endemic birds and exotic species rarely seen elsewhere. According to Adelaide Now, several tourism agencies have joined together in a campaign to promote South Australia as a birding hotspot, wooing international birders with an ecotourism focus. The campaign is not unanimous, however, and some question its potential effectiveness when more local efforts have had only limited success.
Would you like to go birding in Australia to add such beautiful birds as the zebra finch, black swan and common bronzewing to your life list? Be sure to pack along your Birds of Australia field guide and you're good to go!
