Every year bird nerds across the country stop for 20 minutes and count the types of birds they see in their favourite outdoor spaces.

This year the Aussie Backyard Bird Count runs from the 18th to the 24th of October.

“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, as long as each count lasts 20 minutes exactly.

You need to note the type of bird you see and the number using the special bird count app.

“The data collected assists BirdLife Australia in understanding more about the birds that live where people live.”
