Birds of Milman Island

Fourteen Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service and Department of Environment surveys were made of Milman Island from 1985 to 1995. A total of 81 seabird and non-seabird species were observed. Numerous vegetation communities provide varied habitats and food sources for birds at the island. Seven non-seabird species were observed either in breeding plumage or breeding. Low-level human disturbance has little effect on nesting birds because of the remote location of the island. Predation by amethystine pythons and estuarine crocodiles has been recorded.
