Scarlet-chested Parrot
The Scarlet-Chested Parrot is a small but very colourful parrot endemic to arid inland regions of Australia. This extremely rare bird is seldom seen except during wet years when it feeds mainly on grass seeds. Sightings are often concentrated in sand dune areas with spinifex.
Malleefowl
The Malleefowl is a ground-dwelling fowl-like bird that usually occupies semi-arid mallee scrub. It is notable for its habit of creating a large nesting mound that includes a layer of rotting compost which provides heat for incubation. This species is known for having a lack of parental care after the chicks hatch.
Striated Grasswren
Grasswrens evoke a sense of the Australian outback: their plumage embodies the colours of the land they inhabit. Cryptic in their habits, Grasswrens frequent some of the most isolated and parts of the country. The Striated Grasswren complex contains 3 different species. The nominate Striated Grasswren inhabits mallee / spinifex country in the SA-Vic border region.
Plains Wanderer
The Plains Wanderer is a critically endangered endemic and nocturnal bird that is nowadays very rare. It is a quail-like bird that is poor at flying. Adult males are less colourful and smaller than females. Adult females have a distinctive white-spotted black collar. Most of the remaining population can be found in the Riverina region of New South Wales.
Pink Cockatoo
The Major Mitchell's Cockatoo, also known as Pink cockatoo, is endemic to arid and semi-arid inland areas of Australia. This large parrot has soft-textured white and salmon-pink plumage and a large, bright red and yellow crest. Many consider this bird as the most beautiful of all cockatoos. Pink Cockatoo males and females are almost identical but the males are usually bigger and the females have a broader yellow stripe on the crest.
Gouldian Finch
The Gouldian Finch is a rare, colourful passerine endemic to the north of Australia. Both males and females have black, green, yellow, and red markings, although the females are less brightly coloured. One can easily tell the difference because males have purple chests. They are thinly spread through the northern savannah-like habitats.
Letter-winged Kite
The Letter-Winged Kite is a small, rare and irruptive raptor that can only be found in Australia’s remote desert. It gets its name from the highly distinctive black underwing pattern of the letter ‘M’ or 'W'. The adult letter-winged kite has pale grey and white plumage and prominent black rings around its eyes. It is the only fully nocturnal raptor and rodents are their main prey; its numbers fluctuate with the availability of rodents, depending on long-term weather patterns
Superb Lyrebird
The Superb Lyrebird is one of the largest songbirds in the world and is known for its elaborate tail and excellent mimicry. The species is endemic to the south east regions of Australia, from southern Victoria to south-eastern Queensland. Males are relatively larger than females and they are only capable of weak flight. They incorporate an amazing array of mimicry into their song, including human-generated sounds.
Budgerigar
The budgerigar (or budgie as Australians call it), is a small, brightly green and yellow coloured parrot with patterned black markings on its back, wings and nape. However, those that are bred in captivity have developed various colours such as blues, whites, yellows and greys. Budgies are the third most popular pet in the world and have been bred in captivity since the 19th century. Wild budgies can amassin flocks of tens of thousands around desert waterholes, providing an amazing outback birding spectacle.
Satin Bowerbird
Commonly found in rainforest and tall wet sclerophyll forests in the region of southern Queensland to Victoria, the Satin Bowerbird is the bowerbird endemic to Eastern Australia. Although a mature male satin bowerbirds are uniformly coloured black, light diffraction by the surface texture of the feathers gives them a deep shiny metallic blue appearance.

Oreoica is the genus name of the Crested Bellbird after which our company has been named and our logo modelled. The Crested Bellbird is widespread in low numbers throughout the drier interior areas of Australia, particularly in dry woodlands from where its distinct call can be heard. Singing from an exposed perch, its bell-like call, with ventriloquial qualities, consists of two-three slow notes followed by two-three fast notes, and can unmistakably be heard from over half a kilometre away.

Taxonomically the Crested Bellbird has been placed in the Old World warbler family Oreoicidae, a “wastebasket taxon” used for birds of which the exact affinities are unknown. The aboriginal name, panpanpanella, is reflective of its cowbell-like voice, as is its early European name, dick-dick-the-devil.

A proportion of our profits will be donated to the Oreoica Fund, Bellbird’s environmental fund from where donations to worthwile bird research and conservation projects are made. Grasswren research, conservation of threatened habitats, and threatened bird monitoring are some of the projects we’re interested in.
