During Springtime when Floriade is on, the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG) are offering a 1.5 hour guided walk to see many of the garden's birds.

The cost of the walk is $15 or $12 for Friends of ANBG.

The walks starts at 7:45am each Saturday and Sunday from 23 September to 15 October 2017.

During this time it is a great time to observe the feeding and nesting behaviour of the birds in the gardens. The guides will guide you through the gardens and point out the birds around the gardens, their habitat and which spots they are most commonly found in the gardens. Binoculars are provided by the Gardens.

Bookings are essentials and can be made online through the link

This morning I did the walk and as promised, we spotted several types of birds from the most common blackbirds; magpies, currawongs and ravens; rosellas, bowerbirds, fairy-wrens, gang-gang cockatoos, red wattlebirds, wood ducks and tawny frogmouths.
