National Bird Week

It’s National Bird Week from October 18-24 and you can get involved by participating in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count.

Now in it’s 8th year, the count aims to understand what birds are where by asking people to note down which birds they see in a 20 minute period in their back yard.

This can be in your actual back yard, or while you out walking in the bush, or along the beach.

Register as a counter today at https://aussiebirdcount.org.au/

The Aussie Backyard Bird Count is one of Australia’s biggest citizen science events. 

If you are in the Glenelg Hopkins CMA Catchment, it might help downloading this booklet about woodland birds of our region.


It’s a fantastic resource. Once restrictions allow our office to re-open in Hamilton, we always have hard copy / printed versions to give away.
