Who says birdwatching in Australia has to be boring?
When my editor at TravelSmith suggested I write a piece on birding in Australia, I was hesitant. I mean: I'm not a birder. But I was spending two months on the island/in the country/on the continent, and I'd already seen quite a few oddly colorful (and horridly noisy) winged creatures.
So I took the assignment, gave it a subtle (not) humorous twist, and am now sitting a little stunned at the fact that she published it. Huh. Score one for people with a sense of humor.
Sorry-not-sorry in advance if this offends any Aussies. Or birders. Or birds, I guess.
