Landscapes and Birds of Northwestern Australia

Birding and Living in the Kimberley

The Kimberley region in northwestern Australia in one of the remotest regions in the country and is well known for its abundance of raptors, large numbers of colorful grass finches and a variety of honeyeaters, fairy wrens, wood swallows and several threatened species. The presentation will highlight the wildlife and landscape of Mornington Sanctuary in the heart of the Kimberley, including brief discussions of current bird research and logistics for a visit.

Stephan Lorenz spent three months working at Mornington Sanctuary for the Max Planck Institute, assisting with a long-term study of the breeding ecology of the Purple-crowned Fairy-Wren. He has been involved with field work and bird research for over seven years and has spent time in Jamaica working for the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Institute, Costa Rica for a Cornell University funded project, and was a bird biologist and educator for National Audubon in southern California.
