Guided walks a treat for bird lovers at Cumberland State Forest

Guided bird watching walks are on again this February at Cumberland State Forest, led by experienced bird watchers from the Cumberland Bird Observers Club.

Forestry Corporation of NSW’s Senior Ranger Tim Liston said the walks were a perfect excuse to get the family up and out of the house early on a Sunday.

“The Cumberland Bird Observers Club’s Sunday morning walks through the forest are an ideal introduction to the forest and our local birdlife,” Mr Liston said.

“We have an amazing array of native birdlife in the forest and the eagle-eyed bird watchers from the Cumberland Bird Observers Club make bird watching a great day out for everyone from first-timers to bird watching enthusiasts.

“The walk is followed by a barbecue breakfast, making it a great morning treat for the whole family.”
