Birds of a feather…head to Sydney Olympic Park!

Ever wondered how we keep track of birds around the Park? It’s no easy feat but our team of experts have gathered all the facts for you in our annual Spring Bird Census.

Our Parklands ecologist, Jenny, gives you all the nitty-gritty details of the survey…

“The Spring Bird Census represents the thirteenth annual survey of birds across Sydney Olympic Park in partnership with members from the Cumberland Bird Observers Club.  The main purpose of this survey is to identify trends and changes in bird populations and to use this information to implement and test habitat management strategies. Thirteen years has resulted in a robust set of data that makes analysis of long term trends possible.  Presented here are some of the preliminary results.”
