While Philip Maher is an erudite Australian birder in general, his name has become synonymous with the Plains-wanderer, a species of the open grasslands of interior Australia that he has studied intensively for many years. Philip and his partner Patricia have organized and led birding and natural history tours throughout Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and Southeast Asia. Not to be defined by birds alone, Philip’s zeal for native vegetation is demonstrable in the several thousand trees, shrubs and grasses he raises from locally- collected seeds each year.  Show tours with Phil.
