AUSSIE BACKYARD BIRD
COUNT – 19-25 OCTOBER 2015
Thank you to everyone for
registering for the Aussie Backyard Bird Count, there is now only one week
to go until the
Count officially begins!
We have been receiving a
lot of questions recently about how to participate, and we wanted to let
you know again that
you don't need a smartphone/app to take part in the Aussie Backyard Bird
There are two ways to take
part in the Count:
1. You can submit your
checklist through the online
web form on the Aussie Backyard Bird Count website (please note this
is not a
downloadable form). The form will be available to view and use here from this weekend; giving you time to have a look
at it before the event officially starts on Monday 19 October.
2. Or you can submit your
checklists through the Aussie
Bird Count app.
If you have the Aussie
Bird Count app from last
year don’t delete it, an update is
available. If you haven’t downloaded the app and you have an iPhone/iPad or
Android, head to the Google Play or iTunes app store and download the free app.
Just by submitting a
checklist during the Aussie Backyard Bird Count you could win one of our
great prizes! Check out the prizes here.
