In this post I have featured some of the bird life we encountered during our four day stay at Narawntapu.

Dodging the wombats around the campground were these Native-hens, one of the largest members of the family Rallidae, and also flightless. We saw these quirky birds throughout Tasmania, wherever there was any freshwater wetlands.
On Bakers Beach we came across a small party of Hooded Plovers. Tasmania is probably the best place to see these stunning little shore-birds, where they are still relatively common compared to their mainland counterparts.
On the freshwater lake at Springlawn there were a few distant ducks, but closer to shore a lone grebe popped up for a photo opportunity in between dives.

This great little National Park is a fantastic introduction to Tasmania and its wildlife and a must see for any nature lovers planning a trip to Tassie. Highly recommended!
Cheers & Happy Birding
