Birds of Central Australia, Northern Territory

23 September 2016

A week spent in the Northern Territory during Spring, was fantastic, and we saw some amazing birds during our time, including the Crimson Chat & Major Mitchell Cockatoo.  A few other lifers included the Red-backed Kingfisher, Little Woodswallow and Black Honeyeater.  This post is a collection of the photos we managed to take of various birds in the red-centre during our visit.

Full bird list and more photos to come...
