See & Do
our birds make their presence known through their tapestry of chirps, fleeting flybys and rustling in the trees.
More than 30 different species live in, or pass through, Cornwall Park. We’re a central pit stop for birds as they move throughout Auckland and beyond. Many birds only fly up to 2.5km at a time and need places to rest and feed on their journey. Some are on their way to the North-West Wildlink, a 50km corridor for birds linking wildlife sanctuaries in the Waitakere Ranges and the Hauraki Gulf. Other birds may be heading south or checking out other central locations. You'll see birds only found in New Zealand, such as kererū, tūi, paradise shelducks and grey warblers, and many introduced birds including finches, pigeons, doves, quails and pheasants.
We can’t guarantee a sighting of your favourite, but we’ve provided some tips below on where they’re most likely to be found. Alternatively, stop by the Huia Lodge Discovery Hub and we’ll point you in the right direction.
