Our common backyard species give us the best indication of the health of our natural environment – think of birds as a barometer for nature.

That’s why each October, people count how many birds they see within 20-minutes in their backyard, local park, even in the heart of the CBD or any other area. This provides a snapshot at the same time each year, allowing us to look at trends in our bird communities, and enabling you to make an important contribution to citizen science.

Especially important in 2020, the Bird Count is a fun and safe activity. But counting birds isn’t just a fun activity for you and the environment – spending time observing nature has been proven to provide benefits to mental health and well- being. All it takes is 20 minutes in your backyard, local park, or favourite outdoor space – anywhere you can count birds.

Count the birds that are counting on you - register now to be part of the nation’s largest annual citizen science event! To find out more, visit www.aussiebirdcount.org.au
