A 100m walk from Mangrove Bay car park to a purpose-built hide allows you to quietly watch some local and migratory birds in a coastal mangrove swamp.
Back to Park
Mangrove Bay is a popular spot for birdwatching. You may be able to spot the collared mangrove kingfisher (Todiramphus chloris pilbara), which hunts at low tide over the mudflats, rather than deep diving. It often nests in termite nests in the tree canopy, in tree hollows or in earthen banks. It has a long, powerful beak and the dark stripe through its eye gives it a masked bandit appearance.
