22-28 October 2012
Every October, BirdLife Australia organises and promotes Bird Week with the goal of inspiring Australians to take action and get involved in bird conservation. For almost 100 years, October 28 has been designated ‘Bird Day’ across Australia.
Spring in Australia is the peak nesting and breeding time for many birds. So October is a great time to get out and see birds in action and learn more about how you can help them. This year, Bird Week's focus is on the needs of nesting birds and the variety of nesting styles birds adopt.
During October and into November BirdLife Branches and Centres around Australia will host activities in their local region.
