ALBANY BIRD GROUP

 
We are a group of birdwatching enthusiasts who meet on a regular basis to observe the birds of this region. Anyone interested in birds is welcome to join our outings.

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month visiting areas between Denmark, Wellstead and the Stirling Range. Additional excursions are scheduled on weekends in spring. All our outings are held jointly with  BirdLife Albany, the local branch of BirdLife Australia.
