It's time to count your birds!

Posted: 19 October 2021

The Great Aussie Backyard Bird Count is here again. Time to take you cuppa outside and sit for 20 minutes noting the birds in your back yard.

You don't even have to know exactly what they are - there is a bird-finder in the app to help identify your birds.

The Count runs all this week, so you have plenty of time yet to sign up, download the app and get started. Go to

Parklands Rangers certainly have plenty of opportunity to contribute to the count, working in some of the best bush parks in the region.

Ranger Chris Allen is a keen birder and finished his day yesterday with a quick count of the birds around Parklands depot on Gateway Island. Aren't we lucky to be working with this mob?
