Aussie Backyard Bird Count – 18 to 24 October 2021

Over five million birds were counted over the seven days via the Aussie Bird Count app by thousands of participants, which was more than the 4.6 million birds counted in 2020, and 3.4 million the year before in 2019!

Which bird do you think comes out on top as the most counted?

Yep, you guessed it, the Rainbow Lorikeet. These nectar-loving birds really love our urban gardens that are increasingly becoming established native gardens of eucalypts, bottlebrushes, and grevilleas.

If you didn’t take part in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count this year, how about locking it into your diary for next year?
