So looking at a couple of other posts it would seem that feral species are allowed - if not please let me know and I will drop this one from the list.

I think we all included feral species. Hell, in order to boost numbers I'd include chicken. 😎

Thanks all for following along. I’m loving how different the birds we all have in our backyards scattered around the world are. Plus of course the birds that we travel to see.

Now some would say it is too early in the year for EBCs (well I read that on @xelas's thread at least ;)).  But the following species are not found locally, so EBC right? 

 

Murray-Kulkyne National Park (or possibly Hattah-Kulkyne National Park - they are adjoining and we kind of went off script on the way out) - Jan 2020

 

32) Emu

33) Grey Butcherbird (immature)

34) Crimson Rosella (Yellow form)

And at Ouyen Lake

35) Mulga Parrot

I would say that only the Grey butcherbird may be an EBC, and you´ll see worst than that around here, at leastI´m sure I´ll post pictures worst that than one.

Ok so 35 species from Vic isn't a bad start, especially as it was meant to be a catching up with family trip not a wildlife trip.  But hey you've got to do something when catching up with family so why not watch wildlife? 

 

I've been meaning to head out on a bird walk this week after work, but the weather has not cooperated (not that I'm complaining we need the rain).  So here is one from my backyard.

 

36) Pied (Torresian) Imperial Pigeon - a wet season migrant.   Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia - 23/02/20
