About the Walka bird app

The Walka Bird app has been designed as an information resource for students and visitors. It introduces freshwater birds, woodland birds and raptors using detailed information to assist in the observation and understanding of birdlife in the Walka environment.

One of the most significant 19th century water treatment systems in Australia, Walka has evolved into a refuge for over 140 species of birds and an endangered vegetation community.

The app is designed to help students focus first on the overall shape of the bird and then use various visual field marks for identification.

Viewing areas located along the lake trail at Walka are provided for observing wildlife and can be used in conjunction with this app. The app is currently available for iOS devices only.

This project has been developed with the assistance of the Hunter Bird Observer's Club Inc and funding through the NSW Heritage Grants Program.
