Hello from Down Under!


Hi everyone! We're on our honeymoon down in Sydney. The wedding on Friday was great despite a little rain. I'll post some pics when I get back. We've done some leisurely birding while visiting some sites with the best being at the Royal Botanical Gardens adjacent to the Opera House. We encountered several groups of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos including two very tame individuals. We've also seen a few Kookaburras, Rainbow Lorikeets, tons of Australian White Ibises, too many Noisy Miners, and a buttload of Silver Gulls. Today we're visiting the zoo and tomorrow we're heading to the Blue Mountains where we'll see lots more birds.

G'day mate! Your life list should absolutely explode on this trip.

One question I've been dying to know the answer to: are there Outback Steakhouses in Australia?

Seriously, though, have a great time down there! And, while not discounting all the cool bird species you're sure to see, I'm also expecting some photos of one of my favorite mammals on the planet: wombats!
