The celebration of National Bird Week has its origins back in the early 1900s when 28 October was first designated by our predecessor, the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union, as the first ‘Bird Day’. BirdLife Australia organises and promotes Bird Week with the goal of inspiring Australians to take action and get involved in bird conservation efforts.

You  can celebrate National Bird Week by taking part in the biggest citizen science project to hit Aussie shores!

During Bird Week, thousands of people from across the country head out into their backyards, local parks or favourite open spaces to take part in the annual Aussie Backyard Bird Count!
