MUTTON BIRDS OF PORT FAIRY
The short tailed shearwater or Mutton Bird is the only variety of petrel whose breeding grounds lie solely in Australia. These remarkable birds about the size of a seagull occur in quite large numbers and return annually to Port Fairy to mate and incubate their one egg. In mid April each year they fly north to the Aleutian Islands near Alaska. They complete this 15,000 km journey in only two months. After resting and feeding they head home following the coast of California and then south west across the pacific. The prevailing winds aid them in their journey but the birds are exhausted when they finally reach "home" in September. They return to the same nest they vacated the autumn prior and find their mate as they generally mate for life. Each evening just on dark you can enjoy the sight of hundred of birds flying in to Griffiths Island. Magnificent birds in the air they are rather awkward on land but squawk and call to their mate as they seek out the burrow. There is no cost to view this amazing spectacle and their journey home every night can be viewed from the comfort of The Waves.
