Birds observed on the Freycinet Peninsula since we moved here in March 2003, mainly by us, but a few by our guests.

We'd also love to add some photos but are not great bird photographers ourselves. If you have photos of any of the birds below and would be happy to let us add them to our site, please send them. We will of course acknowledge all photographers.
