Client comment

"New Guinea was wonderful. The birding was great, but difficult. The country was beautiful and we had lovely places to explore. Phil Gregory was a wonderful guide--skilled, knowledgeable, kind, patient, and made the utmost effort to get everyone to see the birds."

PHIL GREGORY: Field Guides Leader

Phil Gregory was born in the UK and became a birder when the steam engines were scrapped and birding offered a way to travel and look for wonderful things. The quest for birds has led to many forays in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia, and the Pacific. He and his wife, Sue, worked as teachers for eight years in Nigeria and Zambia, and for seven years in Papua New Guinea. Since 1997 they have lived in Australia.

Phil's major interests are field identification, vocalizations, and the geographic distribution of birds. He is also a writer with assorted contributions to many reference books including Handbook of Birds of the World and a forthcoming Field Guide to the Birds of New Guinea. He has also published and now maintains two on-line checklists, one for the birds of Australia and its island territories and the other for New Guinea and associated islands. Phil and his wife, Sue, run the well-known Cassowary House, a birding and nature lodge situated in a great birding spot in the rainforest at Kuranda, near Cairns in the far north of Queensland. Look for Phil guiding Field Guides tours to Oman, Japan, Cambodia, Ghana, Uganda, and Madagascar.
