… to the mighty Wedge-tailed Eagle, Aquila audax (view the sequence of spectacular photos at Canberra Nature Map), Mount Majura provides habitat for a wide range of bird species.

The grassy woodlands and open forests of Mount Majura provide habitat to a wide range of resident and visiting birds from the majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle to the tiny Weebill. There have been confirmed sightings of 112 different bird species in the nature reserve (Canberra Ornithologists Group) including rare and endangered species.

Check out our feathered friends on the website of the Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG) which has lots of information on the distribution, seasonal occurrence and breeding of birds, as well as brilliant photographs taken by COG members and even records of calls of some species.
