Wed Oct 14: Tanya Loos – Joint CFNC-Birdlife Castlemaine District meeting

Join Tanya Loos, BirdLife Australia, on a walk through Australia’s largest annual bird count – the Aussie Backyard Bird Count. Now in its 7th year, this event is especially catered to the beginner birdwatcher. Tanya will discuss how to get involved, how the count relates to BirdLife Australia’s conservation and advocacy work, and finally some tips on bird identification and FAQ.

A bit more about the count. Held from 19th to 25th October, the Aussie Backyard Bird Count is a great way to connect with the birds in your backyard, no matter where your backyard happens to be. You can count in a suburban backyard, a local park, a patch of forest, down by the beach, or the main street of town. ⁠In fact, you don’t even have to leave home, making it the ultimate COVID-safe activity!⁠

Last year’s count revealed a distinct southward trend of birds such as White-winged Triller and Crimson Chat, due to an irruption of dry country species into Vic.
