King parrot
The only Australian parrots with a completely red head are male Australian King-Parrots. The only difference between males and females is that females have green heads and breasts. Both the male and female have a red belly and a green back. Their wings and long tails are also green. Most of the time, king parrots are found in pairs or family groups.
Glossy Black Cockatoo
Glossy Black-Cockatoos live mostly in eastern Australia, from south-eastern Queensland to eastern Victoria. There is also a small population on Kangaroo Island in South Australia, which is a long way to the west. One common name for this species is the Casuarina Cockatoo, which comes from the fact that the birds like to eat the seeds of the casuarina tree. They pull the seed pods off the tree and tear them open with their strong bills to get the seeds.
White-naped Honeyeater
The White-naped Honeyeater is a small honeyeater with a short, thin bill. It has a black cap, a white band across the back of the neck that doesn't reach the eye, and a bright orange crescent above the eye. The sides of the breast and flanks are a washed grey-brown color, and the underside is white. Young birds don't have a black cap, and their white napes aren't as bright or are missing. It travels in large groups, often with other honeyeaters, and gathers in smaller groups to eat.
Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo
The Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo is a big bird with a yellow tail. It is easy to spot because it has mostly black feathers with yellow edges that aren't visible from far away. It has a yellow patch on its cheek and strips of yellow on its tail. The female has a larger yellow patch on her cheek, a pale grey eye ring (the male's is pink), a white upper bill (the male's is grey-black), and black spots on her yellow tail panels.
Forty-spotted Pardalote
Small, greenish bird that only lives in a small part of Tasmania. Mostly grayish-green. There are clear white spots on the black wings. Adults have yellow faces, but young ones don't. Make sure to tell the difference between We saw Pardalote (which is more boldly marked on the back and more spotted on the crown). Only found in parts of Tasmania's dry forest. Almost only eats manna gum (Eucalyptus viminalis) and is usually only seen where old trees with hollows for nesting are present.
Red-capped Robin
A small robin from Australia. Males are black on top, with black heads and chins, and their breasts and front crowns are bright scarlet. Black folded wing with many white panels. The female is brown on top and white on the bottom. Her forehead has a hint of red, and her darker wings have pale panels. This robin can be found in a lot of inland Australia. It usually lives alone or in pairs in more dry places than other robins in its genus. Like most Australian robins, it hunts by picking food off the ground.
Australia's Mallee Ringneck
Australia's Mallee Ringneck is a breed of parrot that has been kept as a pet for a long time and has a lot of history. It is one of the most interesting and unique parrot breeds out there. Their beautiful looks and wide range of colors, along with their silly and often sweet personalities, make them a joy to be around. This species, which is sometimes called the "28 parrots," has a few different breeds, each of which has its own unique traits.
Golden Bosuns
This beautiful seabird is found from the western Pacific to the Caribbean. It is a bit smaller than the red-tailed tropicbird. But Christmas Island is home to a unique subspecies with feathers that look like gold. This bird is called the golden bosun by the people who live there. Golden bosuns hunt fish and squid at sea by diving into the water.
White-bellied Sea-Eagle
Huge gray and white raptor that flies with strong V-shaped wings. In flight, look for the black and white pattern on the underside of the wings and the short tail. The young bird is much darker, and it can be hard to tell it apart from a Wedge-tailed Eagle, but the tail is mostly white and not very long. Most often found along coasts, estuaries, and other bodies of water.
Grey Goshawk
The Grey Goshawk comes in two different colors, grey and white. They were once thought to be two different species until a mixed pair was seen nesting together. When this happens, the babies are usually either grey or white, like their parents, and it is very rare for them to be a different color. These young birds usually eat mammals, like rabbits, possums, and bats, as well as other birds. The male usually catches the mammals, but the female feeds them to the young.

Australia’s unique flora and fauna are like no other and we recognise our role in the importance of conserving them and travelling responsibly. Incorporated in our trips are highly engaging nature and wildlife experiences that support local conservation efforts, including ethical wildlife encounters and hands-on conservation activities, and more. When you travel with us you also give back to the Australian Geographic Society, the charity at the heart of Australian Geographic. Every year a portion of the proceeds is used to support explorers, scientists, researchers, ecologists, and environmentalists. In this way, your trip helps sustain the wonderful places, fauna, flora, people, and cultures you’ll experience. Also, across many of our trips, we work with local researchers, environmentalists, and conservationists on citizen science projects that contribute to valuable research being done in wild and remote areas.
