If you go to
you will find a great site with bird photos, and you can join a Google group where Ian Montgomery (from Queensland) will send a free Bird of the Week photo to your email. This site was recommended to me by the Collections Manager, Ben McHenry, at the Science Centre of the South Australian Museum. I went there this week to see the Archaeopteryx fossil cast - actually they have three, of two specimens - because of the research I have been doing for my college project. Ben was very helpful, pointing out that as a member of the public, the Museum and the specimens are mine (and everyone else's!) because our money pays for them; so they are happy to show specimens not currently on display, such as "Archie" as I have taken to calling him. He explained that all the specimens ever found (I think it is eight) have been found in one quarry in Bavaria.
