Bird Species and Their Habitats
Tucked away in the far north-east Coast of Tasmania is Mt William National Park. Mt William is an unspoiled nirvana of seemingly endless stretches of pristine white beaches with a backdrop of beautiful turquoise ocean. Above all, this windswept coastline with rocky outcrops is the home to over 100 bird species. For instance, see honeyeaters, wrens, robins, finches, pardalotes, parrots, yellow wattlebirds and the noble looking yellow-tailed black cockatoos which are all regularly sighted in the park.
The regions mild climate encourages over-wintering by some migratory birds, so winter has some offerings. The coastline of north east Tasmania at Mt William National Park and Bridport boasts migratory birds like swamp harriers and short-tailed shearwaters. In addition, pelicans, terns and oyster catchers can be found around the beaches. The skyline can reveal sightings of wedge-tail eagles, white bellied sea eagles, gannets, and albatrosses.
North east Tasmania’s coastal heathlands, rich pastures, diverse forests, coastal and inland waterways are home to many Australian bird species. The lush local grasslands and inland waterholes provide habitat for egrets, lapwings, pipits, raptors, geese and black swans. In addition, grebes, most species of duck and the Tasmanian native hen are also in the region.
The varied forest habitats of central north east Tasmania on the outskirts of Scottsdale support a diverse range of bird species and is popular territory for little brown jobs. Our many land bird species are associated with woodland areas and guides, Bushie and Ben welcome the opportunity to seek them out for the keen birder to see.
