The Aussie Backyard Bird Count
Sean Dooley, Australian Birdlife Managing Editor & Chief Bird Nerd, joins Michael to talk about this year’s Aussie Backyard Bird Count which began yesterday.
Since BirdLife Australia launched the Aussie Backyard Bird Count in 2014, the number of participants has risen from 9,000 to over 70,000. Unsurprisingly, the amount of birds that have been counted in our cities and towns has also risen – from 850,000 to more than 2.75 million birds last year.
Mr Dooley says “this year, more than ever, we need as many people as possible to join in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count so that our annual snapshot of Australian birds becomes clearer and more finely detailed than ever before.”
