The BirdLife Australia count was held as part of National Bird Week during October and involved residents taking note of how many birds they spotted in their community over a 20-minute period.

This year’s national birdwatching survey recorded over 583 bird species.

BirdLife Australia’s Sean Dooley said the results of this year’s count would give the organisation a much stronger sense of what was occurring to Australian birds across the country.

Next year’s Aussie Backyard Bird Count will start on October 23 2017.

The full results of the census are available at
