Bird Walk (23/06/2024)

Spotted Pardalote, Pardalotus punctatus, often join mixed foraging bird flocks leaf-gleaning high up from the tree canopy  Canberra Nature Map)

Join bird enthusiast Peter Miller for a morning stroll through Mt Majura’s woodlands to spot, observe, listen to, and learn about the amazing variety of birds on Mt Majura.

We plan to walk on rough foot tracks, and off track on uneven ground. Insectivorous birds of different species often join each other and move together while foraging particularly in winter. With some luck, you’ll see mixed-species foraging flocks on the walk.

When: Sunday 23rd June, 8am (sharp) – 10 am

Where: Meet at nature reserve entrance Tay St / Ian Nicol St, at The Fair, North Watson (volunteer registration point on this map)


Bring Sun protection and a Gold Coin donation for a bird list; wear appropriate clothing for the weather.

Recommended: Binoculars, a bird guide or bird id app if you have them.

With over two hundred recorded species, Canberra and the surrounding region has the richest bird life of any Australian capital city. Roughly half – 112 species – have been recorded on Mt Majura.

Find out more about our feathered friends on the website of the Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG) which has 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 of the bird species.
