South Australia birding - Mallee and Coast

South Australia has a variety of great habitats. My favourites are arid areas of saltbush and bluebush with Mallee, like Monarto Conservation Park and further north around Brookfield Conservation Park and Gluepot. I also love coastal areas, like the Coorong as well as north, around Port Wakefield.

I've only been out a few times recently but have seen some nice birds and will add a few photos for you to enjoy.
