Aussie Backyard Bird Count

by EricaL (follow)
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.

The app is designed to take you through the bird identification process and search for bird sightings in your local area area, also study state and national statistics.

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo


Last year, Australian participants counted more than 1.4 million birds. This year, BirdLife Australia hopes to increase that to 1.5 million bird spots across the country.

Will you put your hand up to count for Victoria? Share your bird spots on social media and follow along with the hashtag #AussieBirdCount.

While we're talking about birds, have you considered ways to attract colourful feathered friends to your backyard? More here
