Come birding in the beautiful 'Bungles. Join other enthusiastic volunteers to count birds along different trails within Warrumbungle National Park.

We've been monitoring the recovery of the bird community since the devastating fire of 2013.

We do 2 surveys a year, in Spring and Autumn. Last April, we saw 600 birds of 60 species, including a new species for the survey, superb parrots. That makes 110 species in total.

We'll go out counting birds each morning from 28 September to 1 October inclusive – leaving you plenty of time for other bird-watching and exploring Warrumbungle National Park.

Anyone can be involved and can join for as little or as much as they want.

For information about the previous bird counts, see Birdwatch at Warrumbungle National Park.
