Sixteen species of birds were seen on or near Curtis Island. Only four species were found breeding. The avifauna of Curtis Island is compared with that of nearby small islands in Bass Strait. A hypothesis is proposed to account for the number of health/forest passerine species that breed on Curtis, Great Glennie, Rodondo, Hogan, Long and Deal Islands.
