City of Darwin is inviting bird watchers of all ages to join a free East Point Bird Watching Walk on 20 October, meeting at 5pm at Singh Park.
The East Point Bird Watching Walk will be led by bird experts from BirdLife Top End after an introduction from the City of Darwin Gardens for Wildlife Officer.
Bird Watchers will have the opportunity to learn about birds that live and thrive at East Point, their habitats, numbers and migration patterns.
Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis encouraged the community become involved.
“This special event is aimed at anyone who has an interest in birds. You will be amazed at the number and variety of birds that live at East Point, so close to the city.”
Amanda Lilleyman, a bird researcher based at Charles Darwin University and Convenor of BirdLife Top End, says she hopes during the walk to point out birds that live in the area.
“East Point is home to many birds and we could see Rainbow Pitta, Rose-crowned Fruit-dove, Emerald Dove, Green-backed Gerygone, Australasian Figbird, Spangled Drongo and Northern Fantail.”
