Aussie Backyard Bird Count 2016

Celebrate National Bird Week 2016 by taking part in the biggest citizen science project to hit Aussie shores! From 17-23 October, thousands of people from across the country are heading out into their backyards, local parks, or favourite outdoor spaces to take part in the third annual AUSSIE BACKYARD BIRD COUNT!

To get involved all you need is 20 minutes, your outdoor space of choice, and some keen eyesight (or binoculars). It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an expert—we’ll be there to help you out along the way. Simply record the birds you know and look up those you don’t on our new Aussie Bird Count app or through our website www.aussiebirdcount.org.au. You’ll instantly see live statistics and information on how many people are taking part near you and the number of birds and species counted across your neighbourhood and the whole of Australia!

Not only will you get to know your feathered neighbours, but you’ll be contributing to a vital pool of information from across the nation that will help us see how Australian birds are faring.

Last year the event counted 800,000 birds, this year let’s make it one million. Get your friends and family together, head into the great outdoors and start counting! Help us to record the local bird life that can be found in the City of Ryde area and across Australia.
