We booked Margaret’s Bird Finder tour through Baunti Escapes and it was one of the highlights of our tour. Margaret is an ex-ranger and the author of the definitive book on Norfolk Island’s birds. She is also an excellent communicator. Our group of six that day ranged from experienced bird watchers to mildly interested, and all of us found plenty to interest us. During our ramble through the national park area we focused not only on the bird life but on the flora of the area and something of its history during World War 2. We also visited Margaret’s property, which gave us the opportunity to see the masked booby colony that nests there - wonderful to watch the big fluffy chicks with the adult birds! We also explored the coastal area and its birdlife. Margaret is generous with her time and we had a happy 5 hours with her. A memorable experience!

Our tour guide, Margaret Christian, had so much knowledge and was so willing to share it. I learnt so much about birds in general as well as about the particular endemic bords of Norfolk Island. Well worth doing this tour.

It is an eye-opening experience to spend the morning with Margaret not only to see the birds but to learn about the environmental issues affecting Norfolk Island. Margaret is passionate about her island home and has I suspect unparalleled knowledge about it's natural environment. She found both the birds I particularly wanted to see, including of course the green parrot. The other highlight was seeing the masked boobies nesting on her cliff top property. I can't recommend this tour highly enough if you want to learn more about the birds and plants of Norfolk Island.

Margate’s knowledge of Norfolk’s natural environment and the history of its management and recovery is unparalleled. Our tour with her was a highlight of our holiday and her knowledge of the bird life, and the personal commitment she has made to improving bird colonies in the island, made our whole trip so much richer

A small group tour lead by a delightful and passionate lady. Margaret is a fount of knowledge about the birds and wildlife of the island and is fascinating to listen to. The tour takes an easy walk through the national park looking for forest birds and the elusive green parrot and then visits her beautiful cliffside property for morning tea and sea bird spotting. Finished up with a quick trip to look at the wetlands and other places where birds were active. A half day tour but I could have happily spent the whole day bird spotting. Will definitely do again if I return to Norfolk.
