National Bird Week | Aussie Backyard Bird Count is underway

The annual BirdLife Australia Aussie Backyard Count is on all this week (from October 23 to 29).

The event aims to collect data to assist BirdLife Australia in understanding more about birds which coexist with humans.

The count coincides with National Bird Week.  

With three years of data from the counts already collected by Australian birdwatchers, BirdLife Australia’s Sean Dooley says the results provide a picture of how our birds are faring, both locally and across Australia.

“We are fortunate to have a wonderful array of birds in Australia, many that can’t be found anywhere else in the world,” Mr Dooley said. 

“The information we collect from the Backyard Bird Count each year not only shows how much Australians care about birds, but also provides clues to what’s happening with different bird species.”
