Wildlife in Central Australia
Alice Springs and surrounding region provides a popular spot for some bird watching. There some permanent and semi-permanent waterholes in some of the gorges along the MacDonnell Ranges that help to sustain life.

Alice Springs also has a number of key locations for bird watchers including the Alice Springs Desert Park, Olive Pink Botanic Garden and the Alice Springs Treatment Plant (Alice Springs Sewerage Ponds).

Pictured here is the Western Bowerbird (Chlamydera guttata), the male bird creates a bower, adorning it with found items such as the green native fig fruit and range of white objects varying from pebbles, white plastic utensils, bones etc.

The Western Bowerbird has a characteristic erectile iridescent lilac/pink nape crest, which is much smaller in the female, with less of a marked pink crest. The immature bird lacks the crest. Olive Pink Botanic Garden is a popular spot to see the resident Western Bowerbirds.

More images of the Western Bowerbird can be seen in our Olive Pink Botanic Garden section.
