Bird Week 2013 - Vote Willie #1
As part of a new partnership with BirdLife Australia, Aurora Expeditions is proud to be supporting upcoming ‘Bird Week’ by campaigning for Australia’s much-loved Willie Wagtail to be voted as Australia’s favourite bird.
The bird we have chosen as our favourite, the Willie Wagtail, is one of Australia’s most widespread (and possibly cutest) birds. Not only are they adorable, Willie Wagtails are fearless, (willing to take on much larger birds to defend their territory), loyal (they usually mate for life), and of course entertaining, as they wiggle their tail side to side all day long!
Bird Week commences 19 October and voting will open on 7 September. Vote Willie Wagtail as Australia's favourite bird at http://www.birdlife.org.au/favouritebird.
