Aussie Backyard Bird Count
The 2021 Aussie Bird Count will run from October 18‒24 during National Bird Week.
The Aussie Backyard Bird Count is one of Australia’s biggest citizen science events. This year is the eighth count, and the organisers are hoping it will be the biggest yet. Join thousands of people around the country in exploring your backyard, local park or favourite outdoor space and help us learn more about the birds that live where people live.
The #AussieBirdCount is a great way to connect with the birds in your backyard no matter where your backyard happens to be — a suburban backyard, a local park, a patch of forest, down by the beach, or the main street of town.
How to get involved:
Just spend 20 minutes in your favourite outdoor space and report about the birds you see during that period. You can submit your results using the app or the web form. Every count helps.
You can count as many times as you like over the week. It is only requested that each count is completed over a 20-minute period. The data collected assists BirdLife Australia in understanding more about the birds that live where people live.
