Back to 'bungles bird week

Help us understand how Warrumbungle National Park is recovering from the fire in 2013 by recording what bird species you see.

The birds are coming back. Our citizen science bird survey started in September 2014. We have now surveyed the birds four times, in Spring and Autumn each year from 2014. Our data shows that the bird community in burnt areas is starting to become more like the bird community in the unburnt areas.

You can help! See dates on the right for the next 'Back to 'bungles bird week' where we will go out and count birds each day, weather permitting. Expect to see at least 600 birds of around 70 species over the four days. All skill levels from novice to expert bird watcher are welcome.
