It has been a long time since we started as Backyard Galah Cam back in 2010. We have made many friends and seen people come and go, some people who have passed away are dearly missed but are remembered in our hearts, as ever.
We realised last year that it was time for the next chapter to our story and that was to create something fresh and exciting, but due to life taking hold we weren’t able to get to work on it.
We decided that having a new name which better fits what we are was the way to go, the reason being that we have multiple cams in different locations and the name relating to only Galahs was not entirely fitting. If people are looking for wildlife webcams in Australia, “Australian Bird Cams” would be better for this.
The new site is a work in progress, we have a new look, forums have been imported. The original content and user accounts are still available. We have a new chat system and now pages to view the cams individually in larger form while still having access to the chat.
There are many other features available like profile pages, photo galleries and a Bird Identification page (work in progress as of writing). There are other exciting features that may also appear over the coming weeks.
We are also working on adding a fourth cam to the line up, presently in Goulburn, NSW, but who knows where it may end up in the future!
We hope that you are liking what we have done, so far. If you are having any issues with the new site, especially with logging in (passwords have to be reset for all imported accounts), please let us know via our contact page.
Rick, Kim and the Australian Bird Cams Team.
