Alice Springs Desert Park

When i was in Australia i also visited the Alice Springs Desert Park, a nice park situated close to Alice Springs. Here i had the opportunity to come close to some very nice birds and native animal widlife. I spend the day wandering around and in one of the glassed enclosements there was this little bird, called a Chiming Wedgebill. The sound really took me away. I think i spend at least 25-30 min in there just taking in the sound. It was sooo loud! It went right through me lol

Some other nice things i saw there include one of my favorite birds, the Kingfisher, Thorned Devil (reptile) and a beautiful green Mantis. Later on in a museum back in the town i found out about this incredible animal called the Bilby. This one was stuffed.. Below are some pictures

All together, a nice place even though i’d rather see the animals in the wild.. but who doesn’t?
