The Abrolhos Islands, off Geraldton's coast, has more than 90 species of seabirds including such as crested terns, honeymooners, button quails, white breasted sea eagles.
The safe and isolated conditions of these islands, abundant with food, make, a perfect seabird sanctuary.
Some of the islands are so densely packed with birds, like the White Belly Sea Eagle, the sheer numbers and density of nesting birds is almost overwhelming. When walking the islands trails, be careful to avoid standing too close or on nests, especially Sea Eagle nests. The density of birds on some of the islands is incredible.
Unique to the Abrolhos are the quiet unassuming Lesser Noddys - their only other nesting place outside Australia is in the Seychelles. The Noddy birds are happy to sit quietly whilst having their photo taken.
