Thinking About Birds

Welcome to my website!


Website last updated: 23 January 2022

I’m Alan Stuart. I live in Newcastle (Australia) and I’m very interested in Australian native birds – especially the ones in my part of the world (the Hunter Region of New South Wales).

I spend a fair bit of time out in the field, either studying Australian native birds systematically or just enjoying looking at them for leisure/pleasure (my Australian IOC list is >740 species). When I’m not in the field, I do a lot of thinking about birds – sometimes seriously, and sometimes for fun!

Welcome to my website. Feel free to browse anywhere – the serious stuff and the fun stuff (actually, for me it’s all fun stuff!)
