@xelasand @Soukousthanks for your comments. The Gulf Country trip was great - lots of flashy birds and spectacular countryside. I'll write more in the TR, however there are other wonderful places betw

Thanks everyone for the welcoming words.

 

Well, what to say about travel in 2021? The Australian border is closed until sometime in 2022 so right now I am grateful that I live in a truly "big country" where there are some interesting and diverse domestic travel options. Later in the year I'm heading for Queensland and Western Australia to add to my Australian bird list.
