#ExmouthGulf is home to a range of #bird species, with many having national and international #conservation status. Providing breeding grounds, food sources & essential nesting habitat, the Gulf is critical to the long term survival of many of these species. #NationalBirdWeek

We spend a lot of time underwater, exploring and talking about the abundant marine life that calls #ExmouthGulf #Ningaloo home. But this #NationalBirdWeek we’re coming up for air to chirp about our feathered friends!

1. It's the last day of #NationalBirdWeek Australia 2021. So, here's one last thread, in which I thought I'd return to the Eyre Bird Observatory & share some personal photos. But first, here's a 1982 cover to the EBO featuring the 1979 Crimson Finch & 1980 Catbird. #philately

🐦 🙋 Put your hand up if you’re a fellow ornithophile (a person who loves birds; a bird-lover)! Here’s a snap of just some of the many species of birds we have on display in our Discovery Centre on Level 4 of the museum. 📸 @nic_stanjo #NationalBirdWeek #qldmuseum

The threatened Regent Honeyeater & Swift Parrot are rarely seen. But conservation efforts by @NorthEastCMA & @trustfornature on critical woodland habitat in Vic are promising with sightings at one of its a #BushforBirds project site this season. #NationalBirdWeek @AusLandcare

Celebrating #NationalBirdWeek with a 1920 letter from William Gerald Woolrych (1864-1961) from his pastoral property Woolthorpe, Queensland. He writes, "Bird life is very plentiful", with wild turkeys so plentiful that "in half an hour we can get as many as we want for the table"
