Next week is National Bird Week and to celebrate, BirdLife Australia asks all Australians to take part in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count.
The Aussie Backyard Bird Count
This is a great opportunity for you to be outside with the kids this spring and get the whole family involved in spotting your favourite feathered friends in the comfort of your own suburban Melbourne yard.
It doesn't take much to do. Register first and download the app at aussiebirdcount.org.au. Then it's up to you to spend 20 minutes a day, bird spotting in your own backyard between 23 - 29 October 2017.
