BirdLife Australia has created the Aussie Backyard Bird Count app for you to take part in Australia’s first nationwide bird survey. For one week each year near the end of October, as part of National Bird Week, join thousands of people as they get to know their local birds and help us discover how our birds are getting on. It only takes 20 minutes in your backyard, neighbourhood park, or favourite green patch to be a part of this exciting event.
All you have to do is sign-up with your name and email address, select your location on the map, and start counting. If you need help identifying birds, use the handy built-in Field Guide. While there are around 800 species of birds in Australia, the Field Guide holds just under 400 species. Try to be as general as possible when searching or typing in bird names to get the best results.
Don’t go away when the Bird Count has finished. You can use the Field Guide year round to learn more about your feathered friends.

Has problems The timer doesn't seem to work properly. My 20 minutes went for about an hour. I think the timer stops when the phone goes to sleep. Also can't locate where I am. But the bird list is very user friendly. Hopefully the bugs will be ironed out for next year
Excellent idea with a few shortcomings No apparent way to edit a checklist. Might have been a grey teal instead of a chestnut teal, but that's now locked in. It needs a smarter database that doesn't need 'Australian' and 'common' in front of the most frequently used bird names.
Good Really good app. I used a field guide which I found more useful and quicker, but it's great that they have the birds in the app to lookup as well.
Not very friendly Can't browse bird details without being in survey or results, and clicking on a species doesn't show me details.
Great A nice way to spend 20 minutes. I'm calling bs on the person who reckons they saw an Albert's Lyrebird in 4305 though!
Great app. It would be good if you could get a photo of a bird when you search for it by species name, before you have to add it to your list. A social networking plug-in that allowed you to share your sightings might also be a neat feature. :)
It's an interesting app. But I looked what has been submited for my area and there are birds listed that you don't find in NSW let alone this area. People aren't very good at identifying birds.
Good app needs more colour range to choose from
love Birds Helping Australia's birdlife :)
needs bigger pics It's a great idea. But the thumbnails are very small and so it's difficult to correctly identify a bird unless you already know what it is. This makes it less interesting for kids. Also : why no seagulls?!
Great thing to do with kids and for nature Lots of fun. Great idea!
Good easy field guide.!
? Problem Added my list, my time counted down. At time zero o couldn't seem to do anything else. Nothing happened when I touched any button. Was my list submitted? No idea. Also couldn't access the 'attached bird list'
It has died? The app worked perfectly during the count period, but now it can't access the internet to load the location map. What has happened? The app encouraged me to continue counting but it's now impossible to do that.
A Birdlover's delight! What a fun way to contribute to the research! It does need time to find your location so you need to have your GPS on at least 5mins or more before starting the birdcount. Not sure if you need to also have WiFi access to see map with location. (Nexus 7 2013)
Aussie birdcount An app that takes you through 20 minutes of birdwatching. Love it
Excellent idea with a few shortcomings No apparent way to edit a checklist. Might have been a grey teal instead of a chestnut teal, but that's now locked in. It needs a smarter database that doesn't need 'Australian' and 'common' in front of the most frequently used bird names. The app's way too big! Please consider those of us with crap phones whose memory space is exhausted even after moving all possible apps to SD. All this hassle just to share the excitement of having spotted an Eastern Spinebill for the first time here....
Aussie bird count Citizen science at its best in Australia. #citscioz
