Australia - East Gippsland

Recently I went to Australia for my second time (from the U.S.). I've birded much of Queensland, but this time I had an opportunity to bird E. Gippsland in SE Victoria (Snowy River country).

I was surprised to find almost no published information on that area. Steve Clark's birding page mostly deals with areas west of where we were.

I enjoyed the trip very much, and although the trip was not specific to birding, I got in quite a bit.

The following is trip report and my humble take on the status and distributuion in my small window of time during the fall.

Seems like you had a good trip, JJP. It's an area I've not been to before (I've only been to Queensland and Sydney), so I would have had 33 lifers in that trip. I must get down there on my next visit to see Superb Lyrebird and Pilotbird especially.

There are lots of national parks to roam in and significantlly little information about the avifauna. It's ripe for research and study.

Errinundra National Park remains one of great national parks I''ve ever visited. It's a rainforest of truly prehistoric proportions. Gang-Gang Cockatoos, lyrepirds and pilotbirds can all be found there, and well as at least 3-4 robin species in season.
