Rankins Springs Birds of the Bush festival

Rankins Springs is holding their annual Birds of the Bush festival next weekend. This delightful little community is situated in the mid-western area of New South Wales.

Rankins Springs is approximately 574 km from Sydney, 353 km from Canberra, 856 km from Adelaide and 519 km from Melbourne.It is located between West Wyalong and Hay on the Mid Western Highway in the Riverina.

I have driven through this area quite a number of times, often stopping for a meal or refreshments on our way somewhere else. It is about time I planned to actually stay there for a few days because the birding is very good.

This photo was taken several years ago when we passed through the town on our way further east. We had lunch in a little park in the main street. Several Red Rumped Parrots were drinking from this pond. They are hard to see because this was before I had my good digital camera with its zoom lens. Click on the image to enlarge.
