Listen: Dr Gary Fitt on why we need to count the birds that are in our backyard.
Taking part in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count is easy! Just spend 20 minutes in your favourite outdoor space and tell us about the birds you see during that period. You can submit your results using the app or the web form.
Every count helps. 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.
Dr Gary Fitt, Convenor at Birdlife Southern Queensland and Honorary Fellow CSIRO Health and Biosecurity, joins Mornings with Fee to share about the upcoming 8th annual Aussie Backyard Bird Count, and why its so important.
Make every bird count, join the Aussie Backyard Bird Count 18-24 October. For more information visit aussiebirdcount.org.au
