Members walk with the Birds

Over 60 Friends responded to the call of the birds on an early morning guided walk in the Gardens on Sunday 12th April. Overcoming multiple road closures due to the Canberra marathon, they arrived with their binoculars to share the beautiful weather with the birds.

Many of us were greeted in the carpark by yellow tailed black cockatoos and gang-gangs - an excellent start. Apart from the antics of the honeyeaters, the cockatoos, fairy wrens and red-browed firetails, we were treated to a lively display by both male and female bowerbirds.

A lovely way to start the day!
