Bellbird Photography Tours

A secretive Malleefowl tending to its mound. Masses of Budgerigars swarming in the sky, drinking from a pond. A Red-lored Whistler singing from atop a shrub in the early morning light. A flock of Banded Stilts in a salt lagoon. Australian Crakes foraging on the muddy edge of a swamp as you creep up to them. The majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle feeding on its kill in the outback.
