The Adélie Penguin and Antarctic Skua breed at Cape Bird, and nine other species have been recorded as visitors (Emperor Penguin, Chinstrap Penguin, Southern Giant Petrel, Antarctic Fulmar, Antarctic Petrel, Snow Petrel, Wilson's Storm Petrel, Southern Great Skua, and Southern Black-backed Gull). Fewer birds were recorded as visitors at Cape Bird than have been recorded at Capes Crozier and Royds, possibly because Cape Bird gets less wind.
