During our national Bird Week 19th - 24th October, there is an opportunity to cast a vote for your favourite Aussie bird.
Making a choice can be rather difficult, and in the end, for me, it had to be the Superb Fairy Wren, which also features as my blog-header.
An announcement will be made during Bird Week on Birdlife Australia website, not only of the most popular bird, but also as an entrant, you may also win a weekend away for two, at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat in the Gold Coast hinterland; it's a grand prize!
It's easy to cast your vote from 52 given species, being some of the most common 'neighbourhood birds' around Australia. Just go here.
