Fourteen species were recorded breeding in the town of Henties Bay (345 ha) in 2016/17 austral summer, six of which made up 85.4% of all breeding birds. The dominant species were Laughing Dove Streptopelia senegalensis, Common Waxbill Estrilda astrild, House Sparrow Passer domesticus, Southern Masked Weaver Ploceus velatus, Cape Sparrow Passer melanurus, and Rosy-faced Lovebird Agapornis roseicollis. The breeding avifauna in Henties Bay is similar to that in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay
