Aussie Backyard Bird Count

Aussie Backyard Bird Count When: 23rd Oct 2017 - 29th Oct 2017 Where: Your backyard Category: Community Events

Celebrate National Bird Week by taking part in BirdLife Australia’s fourth annual Aussie Backyard Bird Count.

From 23-29 October, thousands of people from across the country are heading out into their backyards, local parks, or favourite outdoor spaces to take part. You don't need to have a backyard to get involved - you can count birds anywhere! All you need is 20 minutes and some keen eyesight or binoculars.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an expert - we’ll be there to help you out along the way. Simply record the birds you know and look up those you don’t on the built in field guide on Aussie Bird Count App or website. You’ll instantly see live statistics and information on how many people are taking part near you and the number of birds and species counted across your neighbourhood and the whole of Australia.

Not only will you get to know your feathered neighbours, but you’ll be contributing to a vital pool of information from across the nation that will help us see how Australian birds are faring. So get your friends and family together, head into the great outdoors and start counting!
