Budgerigars in the morning at Docker River

Decided to head out early this morning and checked out the local poo ponds. Always a pleasure to go to such exotic locations for bird watching! Was very happy small flocks of budgies became bigger ones and then a largish one, probably around 200, not the thousands of a few years ago but still lovely to watch and hear a flock of wild budgerigars.

    1. Thanks Pete, couldn't believe they didn't wingtip each other, probably not as fatal as if the roulettes did the same thing!

    1. Ian, happy to give tips closer to the time. Apparently the majority are in Central Queensland now. Depends very much on how much rain we get between now and about 6 weeks before you travel. Lots of rain in the Centre, lots of Budgies. Hope it rains for both our sakes. e-mail me closer to the time at rjwaring@richardwaring.com.au
