The Bay Area Bird Photographers Meeting
Wednesday May 6 7:30-9:00 PM
Location: Lucy Evans Baylands Interpretive Center on East Embarcadero Rd., Palo Alto

Australia and Papua New Guinea, formed from fragments of the supercontinent Gondwana, relic flora and relative isolation have, in geologic time, coalesced to produce unique species found nowhere else on earth.

Intriguing names like Rainbow Lorikeet, Superb Fairy-Wren, Papuan Frogmouth, and birds of paradise quicken the imagination. It contains ancient avian lineages in which males carefully husband giant litter mounds (megapodes) are master design/builders (bowerbirds), wield 5-inch weapons (cassowary), or carry the memory of childhood rhymes (kookaburras). And, if that isn't enough, strange yet adorable marsupials ferrying joeys in belly pockets, are the poster children for conservation (koalas), and fly through the night-time forest (sugar gliders). If these unique creatures are too easily ID'd, Australia and PNG provide dozens of brownish scrubwrens, gerygones and honeyeaters for the birders who relish a challenge.

Pati traveled to Aus & PNG in 2014 and fell in love with the continent down under. When not planning a return visit she volunteers for Audubon, leads her favorite birding team the Fledglings and birding tours for the Sierra Club.
