Bold Park by Sunset walks

Little Eagle. Photo: B.Knott.Bold Park is home to an extraordinary array of birds, each of which plays an important role in urban bushland. Some of the most majestic species include the Little Eagle, which can often be seen circling Reabold Hill; the Australian Hobby and the Brown Goshawk which are a little more elusive. These predators help keep pests and other species in check, while nectar feeding birds, such as the white-checked honey eater are valuable pollinators.

Join our friendly volunteer guides at dusk to discover Bold Park’s bird life and the valuable part they play in this environment. The Bold Park Guides will conduct free evening walks at 6.00 pm on Monday, 11 February and Tuesday, 19 February, leaving from the WA Ecology Centre. For more information phone the Friends of Bold Park Bushland on +61 (08) 9480 3996, email or visit the website. Read more…
