Aussie Backyard Bird Count


Join Townsville City Council and Birdlife Australia in the 2021 Aussie Backyard Bird Count, running from 18 – 24 October.

Taking part is easy! Just spend 20 minutes in your backyard, local park, or favourite outdoor space and tell us about the birds you see during that period.

You can count as many times as you like over the week and the data collected assists BirdLife Australia in understanding more about the birds that live where people live.

You can submit your results using the app or the web form and be in the running to WIN some great prizes including:

  • Swarovski Optik NL 8x32 Binoculars
  • Eggpicnic – custom large “create your own flock” print
  • Pete Cromer fine art prints
  • Wingspan boardgames by Stonemaier Games and much more.
