Norfolk Island Bird Week

16 November 2018 - 24 November 2018

Join local Norfolk Island bird expert Margaret Christian, along with Derek Ball, CEO Wildmob Wilderness Conservation and Chair of Island Arks Australia.  Their wealth of knowledge will provide a fun-filled week of bird watching.

A highlight of the week will be a presentation on the endemic and endangered Norfolk Island Green Parrot.

The Norfolk Island Group is a globally important biodiversity hotspot and has been designated as an ‘Important Bird Area’ by Birdlife International. The group is a breeding site for several 100,000 seabirds including the masked booby, grey ternlet, white tern, sooty tern, & wedge-tailed shearwater. Phillip Island supports one of the largest breeding populations of red-tailed tropic birds in Australia.

Norfolk itself is home to the endemic & endangered Norfolk Island Green Parakeet, & other endemic birds such as the Norfolk Island golden whistler & Norfolk Island scarlet robin.

The various birdwatching sessions throughout Bird Week will be scheduled (and repeated if necessary) to ensure there is no more than 15 birdwatchers at any one time per Guide.
