The Strange Obsession with Isolation and an Iconic Bird

"It was a horrible, rainy, disgusting day" says Vicky, when she saw her first Malleefowl, "I was grumpy and I didn't want to go out". What Vicky didn't realise is that this morning would mark the start of a life's obsession. Raised in Germany, Vicky didn't really have an interest in birds until she came to Australia - she thought birdwatchers were a bit weird - but the sheer abundance, diversity and colour of birds in Australia created an interest that has consumed her life.
