Porepunkah is a Bird Lover’s Paradise! You could find any of the 100 species and more, while staying in the High Country.
Species include the slate-grey Gang-gang Cockatoo (one of only a few native birds to tolerate high altitudes in winter), blue and red Crimson Rosellas and the melodious mainstay of the nation’s bird collective, the Australian Magpie.
Australian King-Parrots, Superb Lyrebirds, Laughing Kookaburras, Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, Fan-tailed Cuckoos and Emus. Birdwatchers will also delight in seeing the country’s largest raptor, the imposing Wedge-tailed Eagle soaring, above crags and swooping into valleys. Alpine areas are also important locations for endangered species such as the Barking Owl and Turquoise Parrot. Many birds typical of lowland grasslands and forests are commonly observed in the high Alps during summer. Species seen at the highest elevations include the Flame Robin, Pied Currawong, Grey Currawong, Nankeen Kestrel, Masked Lapwing, Australian Pipit and Little Raven.
