While this spring saw many of us able to leave home for the first time in quite a few months, we are so thrilled to see a whopping 2195 Birds in Backyards surveys coming in from 728 gardens across Australia! And not only that, but a tremendous 356 different species were spotted.

Time to spruce up your feathers, shake off 2021 and let us know about your local birds!
