Byron Bird Buddies List Of Birds From Wallum Site

The Wallum site has several different types of habitats in close proximity making it rich in wildlife species. 


Below is the list of 101 bird species observed at the Wallum Site by Byron Bird Buddies since 2020. This list demonstrates the richness and diversity of the avian species.  



This area of Wallum, the last in Byron Shire, is already fragmented and it is so important to preserve the remaining combinations and relationships of these complex habitat types for birds and other species that depend on it.
