I recently completed a one week birding tour in the Northern Territory with Bellbird Tours in the last week of August 2023.  Being the dry season, the weather was hot and sunny, with daily temperatures reaching the mid-thirties after a cool start.  The Top End was a new location for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  The birding was great, and overall I added over 50 bird species to my photographic life list, as well as new photos of more familiar species.

I have split the birds into various categories in the galleries below:

Fogg Dam and Kakadu NP

Finches and Fairy-wrens

Honeyeaters

Parrots

Darwin - shorebirds

Darwin - other birds
