Perth Western Australia
Perth provides good introductions to Western Australia’s 500 bird species. There are many parrots including Carnaby’s Black-Cockatoo, honeyeaters and an amazing five species of Fairy-wren to see. Two excellent city sites are Kings Park and Herdsman Lake with water birds, parrots and smaller birds on view.
