The Shoalhaven is home to an amazing array of birds, with habitats including heath, woodland, riverine, rainforest, wetland, beach, estuary, rock platforms, cliffs and many urban and suburban gardens. Some birdwatchers would say that the variety of parrot species is the greatest attraction, while others would point to the rare and threatened species we are trying to protect, or the migratory waders and shorebirds, or the rarities that seem to be attracted to Lake Wollumboola and Shoalhaven Heads.
