Thanks for the great review Hales2010. I suspect a lot of the birds were out to feed and get a bit of sun after the rains we have been having. The Fig-Parrots really put on a good show. Our luck for the day! Great birding...More

Thank you for the review Michelle P. It was great photographing birds with you. Give us a call next time you are in the area and we can organise a full day for you.
It was a lot of fun to spend the day with Doug and to benefit from his knowledge of place and species.
Thank you for your review Klaus A. It was great to show you some of the birds in their various habitats!
Great day birding with Doug who knows the birds of the area intimately and tried hard to find my target species. Nice guy. Safe driver. Highly recommended.
Thank you Janet B for your review. I always try hard for my clients! Perseverance usually gets the target bird!
