Bird Watching

Winton Wetlands is a great place for bird watching. We have a range of habitats, that attract a wide range of birds, both common and rare species.

A birdwatcher’s delight

Birds sighted here include the White Sea Eagle, Australian Pelican, Wedge Tailed Eagle, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Eastern Rosella, Red-rumped Parrot, Brown Treecreeper, Superb Fairywren, White-plumed Honeyeater, White-fronted Chat, Yellow-rumped Thornbill and so many more!

In fact, you’re spoilt for feathered choice in the varied habitats throughout the Wetlands – with woodland, bushland, wetland and rare birds all awaiting avid twitchers and casual birdwatchers alike.

Wherever your journey takes you on the site keep your eyes peeled to witness spoonbills, herons, egrets and cormorants go about their daily activities.

Or enjoy the spectacle of more than 2000 pelicans gathering near the shoreline – our natural volunteers, feeding on the European carp.
