How you can help lyrebirds after the fires

The catastrophic bushfires of 2019/2020 damaged large areas of habitat for native birds, forcing many to move into new areas in search of food and shelter. BirdLife Australia estimates that over 40% of the Superb Lyrebird’s range was impacted by these bushfires.

As a result, these normally solitary birds have been observed in close proximity to each other and in locations where they were not usually seen. Unburnt gardens in towns on the urban fringe of bushland may now represent important refuges for birds to forage, nest and hide from predators. These will remain important areas for birds over the next few years as their populations recover from the bushfires.
