After viewing a number of the bird images here and elsewhere I am now curious to get out and give this a go. Especially with my new lens acquisition.

Is there any bird photographers here that could give me an idea of some of the popular places around Hobart?

The lagoon out at Austins Ferry is good. There are usually some good parrots, and even the occasional hawk up the domain (but beware there are some areas up there that are dubious - strange ppl wandering around - I have come across people doing drugs etc - so avoid it now).

THanks Rick, i'll cross the Domain off the list then. I had totally forgot about the lagoon.

Risdon Vale Dam might be another option, but not sure about the birding population, did see a bird of prey pluck a mouse and carry it away the other day coming into work
