I enjoy making the most of my weekends & what Adelaide has to offer.

Take time to count the birds
Aussie Backyard Bird Count is an initiative of BirdLife Australia's Birds in Backyards research, education and conservation program.

This event is held yearly, during National Bird Week (19-25 October 2015). To participate, download the Aussie Backyard Bird Count app from iTunes or Google Play and spend 20 minutes in your neighbourhood, recording sightings and sounds of local birds.

As well as up-to-date statistical information, the app includes a field guide of over 400 common birds in Australia to assist in identification of birds.

Using the Birds Backyards field guide, I was surprised at how many different species of honeyeater there are - in my backyard's bottle brush tree, I've already identified a couple of Red Wattlebirds (territorially nesting) and many New Holland honeyeaters (who never seem to stop still).

To be part of this year's national Aussie Backyard Bird Count, go to www.aussiebirdcount.org.au - register your interest, download the app and start counting!
