During the year I will keep track of what birds we see, but we don’t know where we might go or what we may see! I will include all birds both here in Australia and also should we go overseas I will count those as well. I will record the date and location of the first time I see each species for the year.
For my Australian birds I will use the “Christidis and Boles 2008 key to species names” and list them in the order that they come on that list. For birds listed as “seen in Broome” the location covers an area that is no further than 70kms from the Broome Bird Observatory unless otherwise stated. For birds listed as “seen in Sydney” the location will also cover an area no further than 70kms from the City centre.
If there is a post that I have done that covers any of the species I will attach a link to it. For all my other posts you can click on Clare M.

Clare and her husband, Grant, have lived permanently in Broome, Western Australia since 1999 after living in various outback locations around Western Australia and Darwin. She has lived in the Middle East and the United States and traveled extensively in Europe. Currently she does full time voluntary work for the local Australasian Wader Study Group, which aims to understand and analyze the factors determining shorebird numbers in a rapidly changing world. She is actively involved in fieldwork and maintaining the database. This involves the sighting of these birds both here and overseas resulting in some incredible life stories. She also monitors Pied Oystercatchers breeding along a 23km stretch of beach by bicycle and on foot.
