Aussie Bird Count is on!

Aussie Bird Count is on and you can do it while visiting your patients!

We would like to encourage this great activity to be done while visiting your patients, specially if you are a Volunteer in Palliative Care.  It will give your patients an opportunity to be in the present, mindful of the beauty of nature!

Birdlife Australia’s annual Backyard Bird Count is taking place from 17-23 October, and spring is the best time for this as it’s when birds are more lively and visible, and migrant birds return to our shores.

To participate, you count all the birds you see in one spot for 20 minute stretches. If you can’t see the bird but only can hear it, record it if you can clearly identify it by the call. The Bird Count app has a handy field-guide to help you identify birds.

Head to the official page HERE  to download the app, submit a count and find out more!

Birds in Backyards have put together a handy poster showing some of the backyard birds of NSW, which you can find here
