An Introduction to Australia’s Birds
Australia is an ancient land, home to rocks more than 3 billion years old. Our First Nations people have one of the oldest cultures in the world, dating back at least 65,000 years, predating the modern human settlement of Europe and the Americas. It is a land of weird and unique mammals such as kangaroos, Koala and Platypus. It has many venomous snakes and spiders and even a venomous octopus. Much of our bird life is also unique, many of them more closely related to one another than anything overseas. They are found from the deserts to the rainforests, from the inland to the coast, from the warm waters of the tropics to the frigid waters of the Southern Ocean. This is an introduction to those birds and their habitats.
