Birds at Lammermoor Native Gardens
Beach foredune birds
Birds are not as plentiful in beach foredunes as in the other vegetation zones, this is due to the restricted number of plant species, lack of cover and exposure to the elements. In more remote areas there would be beach dwelling species such as the Beach Stone-curlew, however these birds are very shy and avoid popular beaches.

  Red-tailed Black Cockatoo
Calyptorhynchus banksii
  Brahminy Kite
Haliastur indus
 
 
You may see family groups here or at Lioness Park, among their favourite foods are the seeds of the Coast She-oak, Casuarina equisetifolia.
 
Brahminy Kites are mainly carrion eaters and often patrol Lammermoor Beach looking for dead fish or other marine animals washed up by the tide.
 
         
     
 

Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike
Coracina novaehollandiae

  Nankeen Kestrel
Falco cenchroides 
 
 
These are found throughout the gardens, they feed on insects and other invertebrates that are caught in the air, taken from foliage or caught on the ground.
 
This small raptor can also be seen around the grassy woodlands at Lammermoor and regularly visit the foreshore, perhaps they enjoy a bit of seafood in their diet.
