Finding Fabulous, Feathered Friends
09:00am - 10:30pm, Friday, 02 September 2022
Save to calendar
At Roe Gardens Forrest Dr, Kings Park WA 6005, Australia
Guided Walks and Tours, Kings Park Festival, Walks and talks

Take a walk with Kings Park Volunteer Guides through the Botanic Garden and Bushland areas to discover some of these enchanting and entertaining feathered friends.

Join a Kings Park Volunteer Guide for a walk to discover some of the birdlife in our wonderful inner city bushland.

Since records of Western Australian birds in Kings Park began there have been in excess of one hundred species identified and catalogued. In recent times, for a variety of reasons, that number has dwindled to about 60 being regularly viewed. Added to that number are several introduced species which were deliberately released or escaped from private aviaries. Some birds are resident and breed in Kings Park, some are irregular visitors, while others are migratory and travel thousands of kilometres from northern Australia and Asia.
