Rankins Springs and the surrounding district is home to an abundance of native fauna. Among the many beautiful native bird species that live in the area are the spectacular Glossy Black Cockatoo and the Major Mitchell's Cockatoo. Other threatened bird species found in the district include the Malleefowl, Gilbert's Whistler, Chestnut Quail Thrush, Shy Hylacola and the Painted Honeyeater.

At present there are seven designated birdwatching sites in the Rankins Springs area strategically located to optimise your birdwatching experience. Hides are situated at two of these locations with more planned in the future. Other sites have been identified and will be developed at a later date.
