Northern Birds

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

The Top End contains more than two thirds of Australia's bird species, many of them with strong ties to waterways and flooded plains.At the end of the dry season birds gather tightly around billabongs and rivers to feed and drink. When the rains come they fly to all corners and spread throughout the country.
