QUEST FOR 500

We are on a quest to video and photograph 500 Australian birds.

We are always looking for better video and photographs of birds. Can you help us?

In the list of birds below, an ‘x’ in the ‘More’ column indicates that some video of acceptable quality exists but more is needed. An ‘x’ in the ‘Needed‘ column indicates that no video exists at this stage. An ‘x’ in the ‘Photo’ column indicates that a photo or a better photo is required. Can you help us reach or goal of 500 birds? If you know where video or photographs of desired species might be taken, please do not hesitate to contact us. We may be able to organise a trip to your area in the near future. We don’t need much of an excuse to say “We have GONE BIRDING.”
