Rose Memorial Park (cemetery) Birding

The habitat in the cemetery includes several Banksia trees, tall cypress and smaller pines. The Banksia attract nectar eating birds, like hummingbirds, warblers and oriole. If you watch patiently, Bullock’s Orioles can be seen flying from tree to tree, feeding on the Banksia flowers. Other birds reported in the cemetery include Red-breasted Sapsuckers working on small tree trunks, Anna’s Hummingbirds, Yellow-rump and Townsend’s Warblers, and Pygmy Nuthatches. Cedar Waxwings have nested in the Eucalyptus at the north edge of the cemetery.
