Complete List of Bird-related Cartoons by First Dog on the Moon

Below is a complete linked list of all bird-related cartoons by First Dog on the Moon, the Walkley Award-winning political cartoonist from Australia. He actually lives in Tasmania which is one of the most terrible parts of Australia - don't go there.

As discussed in the main article, these cartoons come from an archive that begins in 2007, but unfortunately some of them are unavailable at the time this list is being posted. The links will remain here, however, in the hopes that access will be restored in the future.
