Back to 'Bungles Bird Week

Thursday 30 April to Sunday 3 May 2020

People watching birds at Warrumbungle National Park, Burbie Canyon track

In 2020, let's get focussed on birding in the beautiful 'Bungles. New leader, still with other enthusiastic volunteers to count birds 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 September, in spite of the drought, we saw 484 birds of 67 species, including 3 new species for the survey, chestnut-rumped thornbills, fuscous honeyeaters and little corellas. That makes 113 species in total.

This time, there's been some rain. We'll go out counting birds each morning from 30 April to 3 May 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.

Come bird watching with us
