Rotunda Park #2

Grassy Woodland at Rotunda Park, 14th February 2016

A key contributing factor to the diversity of bird life in Rotunda Park is the variety in vegetation structure. Large old trees with ample hollows encourage parrots and other hollow-dependent species, copses of shrubs provide habitat for insectivores such as thornbills, whistlers and fantails, while areas of native grasses are the reason you’ll find Red-browed Firetails and the occasional party of Diamond Firetails passing through.
