Let’s put Redfern on the birdwatching map!

Our feathered friends in Redfern need your help this spring to celebrate the beauty and diversity of nature and our native bird life.

This year marks the 10th annual Aussie Bird Count, one of Australia’s greatest citizen science initiatives, that encourages people of all ages to step outside to their favorite spot and spend just 20 minutes observing and counting the birds.

You can celebrate our feathered neighbors and contribute to bird conservation in Redfern by taking part in the Aussie Bird Count, which runs from October 16 to 22.

“We aim to spark passion for birdwatching and encourage active participation in the event,” said BirdLife Australia Public Affairs Manager Sean Dooley.

“The Aussie Bird Count is a fantastic opportunity for all Australians to contribute to bird conservation in our beautiful country. By spending just 20 minutes observing and counting birds, participants can play a crucial role in protecting our unique avian biodiversity.”

You can play a vital role in collecting essential data on species diversity and populations; the count aims to monitor distribution trends and assess which bird species are thriving and which ones need conservation attention.

Share your data: Record your findings using the Aussie Bird Count app or the web form. You can participate as many times as you like during the count period but much sure each count is 20 minutes.

If you’re unsure about bird identification, a built-in “bird finder” tool is available to help you out.
