We had an amazing trip to Darwin and Australia’s Northern Territory. From Darwin, we headed towards Kakadu NP via Howard Springs, Fogg Dam Reserve, Leaning Tree Park, Window on the Wetlands, and the Aurora area where we spent a couple of fabulous days in 104 degree heat. Then we rang in the new year 2014 by birding back in Darwin. We love Australia! Alphabetically:
