Western Australian birds are unique and in many cases found nowhere else in the world.
Bird watching is a popular activity in Busselton as it is an area where many different species are found. There are over 200 species in this area and 41 of these are protected species by international agreement. There are 12 species endemic to the south-west of Western Australia that can be found in the Busselton region.
The birds in the south-west of the state have a very varied diet. Including flowers, berries, seeds, nectar, fish, worms, crabs, mice and sometimes even another bird. There are very few living things that birds will not eat.
If you are at all interested in finding further information about our amazing Western Australian birds. Then I recommend that you visit the website birdlife.org. This site has a great deal of information about the breeding cycles of birds as well as where they can be found.
I have always enjoyed trying to photograph birds here in Western Australia. But many of these birds, especially the smaller ones can be very difficult to photograph. Other species that are not so common can be very difficult to locate in our southern forests.
