More than half the world’s birds evolved in Australia, including its parrots, pigeons, and passerines (songbirds). They are essential to the pollination and distribution of plants here, and are often more intelligent, longer-lived as well as louder and more aggressive than birds from other continents.
Understorey travels with keen bird photographer Ken Glasson to one of his many favourite spots, at Woodman Point. When the news is disastrous and extinctions are mentioned as possibilities, that's when we get outdoors and find renewal in the diverse wonders of nature.
