Eastern Australia

11/25/2012: In my final stop before the flight home, I followed a tip about crakes and owls, and I took a trip to the Sydney Botanical Garden. Just like everywhere else in Australia, or so it seems, there was a preponderance of cockatoos and lorikeets. The owl was found without issue.
