Dates 21/10/2019 to 27/10/2019

One of Australia's biggest citizen science events, the Aussie Backyard Bird Count (ABBC), is back from 21-27 October 2019.

Birdlife Australia is once again hosting this national event and invites everyone in the community to participate in order to capture a snapshot of Australia's birds.  In doing so, you will play a vital role in providing important information to BirdLife Australia to help increase their understanding of Australian bird species. 

All it takes is 20 minutes in your backyard, local park, or favourite outdoor space - anywhere you can count birds.

From the data obtained, Birdlife Australia will be able to quantify on-ground management, analyse bird adaptation to local developments and identify good "birding spots" for ecotourism - just a few examples!
