Got a birdbath


National Parks Association of New South Wales in partnership with Birds in Backyards and The University of Sydney are seeking participants for an exciting new citizen science initiative: Bathing Birds. In this initiative, we will be exploring which birds are using bird baths and how our gardening habitats are influencing which birds are present.

The project will run from Friday the 27th of June until Sunday the 27 of July 2014.  We will run the project again in January 2015 to compare differences in birds using the bath. To take part, all you need is a birdbath that you can monitor for 20 minutes up to 3 times a week

If you are already registered with us as a citizen scientist from the Koala Count and you would like to take part in Bathing Birds, please contact Dr. Gráinne Cleary at
