Native Birds Spotted Flourishing in Mosman Park

Aspiring and amateur ornithologists gathered in Mosman Park over the weekend in search of fine feathered beauties, learning much about the native fauna of the Town, and making new friends along the way.  The Town’s annual and very popular Brunch with the Birds event was held on Saturday 4 November, attracting dozens of excited locals who delighted in spotting the impressive variety of birds in the Town.

The event was presented in partnership with BirdLife Australia, whose volunteers made presentations about how to distinguish bird gender and species, details about the extraordinary variety of native birds who live in Mosman Park; and then featured a guided walk through Chidley Reserve, where a good combination of terrestrial and foreshore birds observed.

The day culminated with a catered lunch at Chidley Point, which was well received by patrons who by then had walked up an appetite - among them Mayor of Mosman Park, Brett Pollock, who thanked everyone who supported the event with such enthusiasm.

The number and variety of species now being observed in Mosman Park is growing each year, as the hard work of the Town’s bush care programme (supported by the Friends of Mosman Park Bushland) is paying off – thousands of plantings over many years have added to the Town’s native tree stock and biodiversity, and this has brought back our native bird species in great numbers who nest here seeking feed, shelter and shade.

To learn more about the impressive array of bird species who live in Mosman Park, and to spot them for yourself (this is a great activity for all ages), BirdLife Australia have a great set of resources, including a BirdFinder on their website where you can identify the species of bird you spot when exploring Mosman Park.  By using their Birdata app, you can help classify and count the birds you observe here in our Town to add to national research data so that we can help track and protect these precious creatures.

You can also help protect our native habitat for our local birds by volunteering with the Friends of Mosman Park Bushland by contacting Coordinator, Sue Conlan by email to Friends of Mosman Park Bushland by email to mail@mosmanparkbushland.org or via their Facebook page
