Summary

Reed Beds Bird Hide at Mathoura is a birdwatcher’s paradise; with different birds to see every time you visit, you’ll never grow tired of this pretty place.
Take your camera for a stunning photo of an eastern great egret or a musk duck thrashing in the water to attract a mate. Walking along the boardwalk look for yellow rosellas and superb wrens or watch at the edge of the water for the purple swamphen.
Turn over the bird panels as you stroll along the boardwalk; check out which birds are vegetarians and which prefers frogs, find out who honks like a goose but soars like an eagle.
