Details: Breakfast with the Birds is an easy-paced, small-group nature experience.
Led by Bird enthusiasts, we provide a close-up view of some of the Kimberley region's rare and diverse bird species whilst enjoying a savannah breakfast of fresh produce grown locally in the Ord River region.
We will pick you up nice and early from your accommodation for a one-hour drive through the scenic Carr Boyd Ranges towards Wyndham. We head off-road down the King River Road to our breakfast site, birding as we go.
The first site we visit we will seek a variety of finches as they come to drink and bathe in the early morning cool, and hopefully see the elusive but exquisitely beautiful Gouldian finch. Here we will meet up with Bushy, our local birding guide, and accomplished photographer.
The next site is a delightful Lilly creek, where Honeyeaters, Mistletoe birds, Fairy-wrens, Doves, Bowerbirds, Cuckoo Shrikes, and many more birds can be found. If time permits, we will visit our secret soak to see what is coming in for a drink.
We will provide you with individual binoculars and set up a spotting scope at the Marlgu Billabong bird hide to ensure you get great views of the birdlife and wildlife.
After a light breakfast, we depart for Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve and the Marlgu Billabong bird hide located on the lower Ord River. Here we view a vast range of water birds and perhaps a crocodile!
This is an important waterbird feeding and breeding area. It is also a stopover point for migratory waders, some of which travel from as far afield as Siberia
We leave Marlgu Billabong around 10.30 am and return you to Kununurra around 12.00 midday.
