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 Count.

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.

Are you based in Melbourne?
Come to the official launch event of National Bird Week. Tomorrow (Tuesday 13 October) from 10am – 3pm, join the 
Aussie Backyard Bird Count team at their Pop-up Backyard located in Melbourne’s very own Fed Square.
Join us for talks about National Bird Week and how to create bird-friendly gardens, LIVE counts, or you could meet a 
Barn Owl and a Nankeen Kestrel and there will be opportunities to chat to the team and have a go at the app.

Do you still have questions?
Please read through our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ page for answers to common questions about the Aussie
 Backyard Bird Count.
