Put on a sun hat, slap on the sunscreen and hydrate yourselves because it's time to take part in our Birds in Backyards Summer Survey 2019!

Want to do a Birds in Backyards survey but don't quite know where to start?

Join us for a free 1 hour webinar and learn:

Birds in Schools is an environmental education project designed to engage Years 5 and 6 students in citizen science through monitoring birds. We have a series of 2 modules available for free to teach teachers and students how to monitor birds (our Pardalote package).

Up to one billion birds strike glass in North America each year, and millions more hit windows each year around the globe, including across Australia. This is an enormous and heart-breaking number. But with your help, we can learn more about where and why it's happening, and work together to prevent one of the highest causes of bird injury and mortality.

Begun in 1998, Birds in Backyards is celebrating its 20th year as a national citizen science program. Now that’s something to get excited about! Learn, participate, and create with us this year.

Spring 2019 Survey Results

Our spring survey results highlight just how busy Australia’s backyards have been! We can never thank you enough for the effort that you put in to collecting this data, taking part in these surveys and for your engagement with your local wildlife. Without your help, our jobs would be tremendously harder!

How to encourage insectivores and granivores this summer


It’s been awhile so we thought it would be a good time to update you all on our Bird Strike Project and what we have been up to.

Good day to you all and seasons greetings!

Looking for something a little different this Christmas - and maybe hoping to start a new tradition that is both festive and sustainable? Why not avoid the pines or the plastic and buy a native tree?
