Bird Week coming up

October 17, 2012

Next week BirdLife Australia celebrates National Bird Week  (click to see details) with the aim of inspiring people to get actively involved in bird conservation. This year the focus is on nesting birds, their requirements and their different nesting styles – an appropriate theme for this time of year.
A few examples from our property are shown here.

Tree hollows are particularly important for a range of birds, and farm sheds can make a secure weather-proof site for an opportunist!
