Aussie Backyard Bird Count

Aussie Backyard Bird Count

With only 6 days until the Aussie Bird Count begins, BirdLife Australia is encouraging everyone to begin planning when and where they will start counting. You can register your interest by heading to the official website at

Whether you take part by yourself or in a group, every bird counted during Monday 23rd October – Sunday 29th October, 2017 will help BirdLife Australia reach its target of 1.5 million birds counted in seven days to smash last year’s record.                       

The new, updated Aussie Bird Count app allows you to take part anywhere—not just backyards, but in local parks, botanical gardens, schoolyards or beaches—wherever you might see some birds. 

For further information please contact Council’s Environmental Sustainability Officer, Aaron Izzard on or (08) 8721 2528.
