Birdwatching in Australia

The title on my latest piece for TravelSmith's Travel Center reflects the seriousness of which I took the assignment. Or it might reflect on the habit of Aussies to give all-too-literal names to things. (Hint: It's the latter.)

As confessed in the article, I'm no birder. I know what birds are. I'm able to recognize and distinguish them from other members of the animal kingdom. And I know the ones we saw in Australia were really, really weird. So I wrote you a field guide for your trip.

Gods, I hope this doesn't get me banned ever entering Australia again. We have friends there!
