Albury and Wodonga councils and BirdLife Australia are calling on local residents to spend 20 minutes in their backyards or local outdoor spaces during Nation Bird Week and count the birds they see for the Aussie Backyard Bird Count from 21-27 October.
The specially designed app will helps you identify local birds based on size, colour and location. The aim is to count more than 2 million birds in seven days.
To take part in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count, all you need is 20 minutes, the Aussie Bird Count app or the website aussiebirdcount.org.au.
Once you’ve counted, you will be able to see the number of birds and species being counted nearby, with real-time updates on the Aussie Backyard Bird Count app and website.
