Australian bird habitats:
Description of habitat
Along the coastline of the Australian continent rockfaces are quite distinct from other parts of the coast, such as e.g. coastal cliffs or beaches or dunes. Several bird species specialise in living and hunting on rockfaces, i.e. exposed rock shelves at the tip of headlands.
