The Aussie Backyard Bird Count is held for one week each October as part of National Bird Week. This year, the Aussie Backyard Bird Count will be held from 18-24 October 2021.
The #AussieBirdCount is a great way to connect with the birds in your backyard no matter where your backyard happens to be — a suburban backyard, a local park, a patch of forest, down by the beach, or the main street of town.
You can count as many times as you like over the week, we just ask that each count is completed over a 20-minute period. The data collected assists BirdLife Australia in understanding more about the birds that live where people live.

Birds love to feed on native plants in the bush, including in residential gardens. Attendees will also receive a bonus native plant from Wollondilly’s Community Nursery to take home.
