It doesn't look like there will be rain, so it's going to be a camping 'swag under the stars' holiday, and this time with a couple of friends in another 4WD. That makes it a lot safer, especially if your camped at least two days walk from any help (as usual).
Here are some more photos from the last bird holiday up in Broome.
Long-tailed Finches coming in for a drink at the Broome Bird Observatory. These are the WA form with the yellow bill, the Northern Territory/Queensland form have a red bill.
One of the most common finches in Australia, Zebra Finches. The male at the front is a lot more colourful with the orange cheek patch and spotted chestnut flanks.
The beautiful Double-barred Finch. This is the kimberley form annulosa with the black rump (white rump on bichenovii in eastern Australia).
