    If you are interested in birds, then King Island is a great place to visit.  It is home and host to a wide range within a relatively small area.  These include 9 King Island endemic subspecies, (live nowhere else in the world), 10 of the 12 Tasmanian endemic species, Bass Strait migrants that travel between the Australian mainland and Tasmania every, Spring and Autumn, as well as international migrants.  Many other species are resident including some that are rare in other parts of Australia such as the Hooded Plover. 

    The shag lagoon bird hide on the way up to the north of King Island is a great place to stop in check out birds. There are some binoculars there for you to use as well.

     A bird survey program “Wings on King” runs surveys in Spring and Autumn, surveying over 60 sites across the island including on private land.  Registrations are open to any birder who is interested.  To find out more about the birds of King Island or Wings on King visit their website.
