Well, another New Year crept up on us once again and once again I will commit to listing on the website! This all started way back in 2012 and several of us continued on in 2013, 2014 , 2015 , 2016, 2017 and 2018. Just looking at everyone’s lists over the years you can see how varied our birding lives can be.

On Christmas Day we did a bird list around Broome and although we also found over one hundred species on both that day and on New Year’s Day the lists were quite different. Despite observing Eastern Ospreys, Brahminy Kites and Red-winged Parrots on a regular basis around Broome all three bird species eluded us on Christmas Day! New Years Day all three bird species were back in their usual spots! This is exactly what makes birding interesting! New Year’s Day was overcast and we observed several Australian Bustards, which we would not have encountered if the weather had been brighter. We find it impossible to not notice birds whether we are walking, cycling or driving and we are grateful we are surrounded by so many birds in our home town of Broome.

There is no doubt that over the coming year we will be away camping and birding and we have plans to explore on foot anywhere we can’t get to by vehicle whilst the land is flooded, so you can watch the list below get longer as the year progresses. As usual it is all about having fun and seeing what crosses our path and making some nice memories and possibly some good photos along the way! Thankfully I can write these posts in advance and then disappear into the “bush” and enjoy all that is out there! You won’t find me on social media!

Once again I will use “Broome” to imply any bird that is no further than 70 kilometres from the Broome Bird Observatory, because that was a parameter set up many years ago. I will link past posts on species I observe where applicable and for any other posts you can click on Clare M. I have referred to The Australian Bird Guide for the most recent sub-species updates.

I am looking forward to seeing the other Beat Writer’s lists at the bottom of the website as well this year and hope that they are all out there having fun!
