With over 100 species recorded in a small area, Berenty is a very productive birding destination. Many water-associated birds can be found on the bank of the Mandrare River, while the spiny forest is a great spot to look for some of the dry country specials. Night outings are useful to look for owls, such as the Madagascar scops owl, White-browed owl and Torotoroka scops owl. The elusive Madagascar cuckoo hawk can be seen in the area.
