Birds of the Interior

 Banded Honeyeater, photographed at Banka Banka Station.

This smartly dressed honeyeater is endemic to (ie only occurs in) dry tropical forest in Australia. A station is the Australian term for a vast pastoral holding (similar to the American term 'ranch').

 Varied Lorikeet, photographed at Banka Banka Station.

These little parrots live in Eucalyptus trees and are endemic to northern Australia.

A male Hooded Parrot, photographed at Pussycat Flats Racetrack. 

These are rare antbed parrots who nest in termite mounds in the semi-arid country of the Northern Territory of Australia.
