Welcome to Bird
Bird is the ultimate in ecotourism and bird life-viewing. Some 1.5 million sooty terns nest here, as well as thousands of fairy terns and common noddies who descend on this coral island en masse between April and October. You just have to sit on your verandah and birds will come to land on your head. Hawksbill turtles breed on the island's beaches between November and March, while their land-bound relatives lumber around the interior. Green turtles also use the sandy shores for their nests. If you don't mind the constant birdsong, Bird Island is also a great place to decompress, with two fantastic beaches and a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere.
