Here on Heron Island we're home to not only a myriad of marine life, but also to a wide variety of incredible bird species 🐦✨ Some visit for breeding or their annual migration, while others live on the island all year round... like the Capricorn silvereye ☝️ ⁠
⁠
#FunFact ➡ This striking bird can only be found on Heron Island and a handful of other coral cays at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef⁠! ⁠
