BACKGROUND on Chanel St:
Since bushland restoration began over 20 years ago this side-stream is transforming into a living heritage resource for our future. The endangered ecological community is called River–flat Eucalypt Forest of the Cumberland Plain Woodland.
This Spring-Summer program aims to increase nesting and foraging habitat for Red-browed Finch, Blue Wrens, Red-rumped Grass Parrots and Spotted Pardalotes. Many larger birds such as Sulphur–crested Cockatoo & Magpie visit and roost at the site, yet it is the small species that require more dense scrub for safety and food sources.
