BIRD species

Many different kinds of birds call the Park their home. Passerines are known as perching birds, and are characterised by the way their toes give them the ability to grip branches, allowing them to perch. These birds include songbirds, magpies and many others.

Non passerine birds include all other species that don’t have the unique passerine toes. This group includes birds like pelicans, cormorants, and even birds of prey like owls and the great wedge-tailed eagle.
